ISSUE: Traffic fatalities OUR VIEW: Local numbers defy national trend

By Sarah Reddoch

Earlier this month, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration announced that the number of traffic fatalities last year was at the lowest level since 1949.

Other data released by the federal agency show the death rate has dropped 25 percent since 2005.

The rate from 2009 to 2010 fell just 3 percent; but because drivers traveled 21 billion miles more last year, even 3 percent is astounding.

These figures are not rates, but actual numbers, and they are staggering.
