Five Year Fatality Rate
 

Five-Year Fatality Rate

— 2010 —

gauge

Note: The 2011 fatality rate will not be available
until April 2013, following the Federal Highway Administration's release of the vehicle miles traveled in 2011.

GOAL:

Reduce the five-year fatality rate for 2012
to 1.38 per 100 million vehicle miles
traveled.

Why This Is Important

Even one death on Idaho's highways is one death too many. A total of 1,086 people lost their lives on Idaho roads between 2007 and 2011. Each death is a personal tragedy for the individual’s family and friends, and has an enormous financial cost to the community. Every life counts.

 

The measure is calculated by dividing the number of fatalities that occur over a five-year period by the number of vehicle miles traveled over the same five-year period. The five-year rate for 2006 to 2010 is 1.53 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled.

 

The department advances programs to eliminate traffic deaths, serious injuries, and economic losses. These programs focus on engineering, education, enforcement, and emergency response.
