2 We en- courage drivers to change their habits and assist with the national goal of reducing motor vehicle crashes and the severity of injuries on our state highways. However, many drivers still create dangers by ignoring the rules of the road. In 2017, reportable Traffic crashes increased by percent. The number of fatalities decreased by percent compared to those in 2016. Motorcyclist deaths decreased by percent; while pedal- cyclist deaths increased, up percent from 2016. Increases were also noted in the number of pedestrians killed in motor vehicle crashes, up percent in 2017. Unfortunately, the number of crashes involving teens increased by percent over 2016. Additionally, crashes involving teens who were speeding also increased by percent. As you study these statistics, we invite you learn about the types of actions that contribute to motor vehicle deaths. Spread the word to all you know that activities like speeding or texting while driving have disastrous consequences.

3 And, being distracted by devices from a cell phone to a navigational device take your attention away from safe driving habits. We encourage you to help us make North Carolina a safer place to drive, bicycle and walk. Please visit our website for more information. This publication is available online at Sincerely, Torre J.
