Abstract A statistical project of traffic fatalities in 2010 shows that an estimated 32,788 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes. This represents a decline of about 3 percent as compared to the 33,808 fatalities that occurred in 2009. If these projections are realized, fatalities will be lowest on record (since 1949). Also, in 2010, fatalities declined in the first (down 11.4%) and second (down 5%) quarters and increased in the third (up about 1.6%) and fourth quarters (up about 1.8%), as compared to respective quarters in 2009.
