CDC reports reduction of car crash deaths in U.S., but not as much as in other countries

(Baltimore Sun) About 90 people a day died in motor vehicle crashes in 2013, a reduction of 31 percent from 2000, according to new data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The agency calls that good progress, but not as good as the average 56 percent reduction in crash deaths in 19 other high-income countries.
The numbers put the United States at the top of the list for crash deaths for its population and the most per registered vehicles. The U.S. also had the second highest percentage of crash deaths involving alcohol at 31 percent and the third lowest front seat belt use at 87 percent.
