Leonard Evans: U.S. traffic safety misleads public

ITMA's President of Emeritus, Dr. Leonard Evans recently published his oponion about the U.S. traffic safety situation on USA Today. 

Last November, the federal government reported something it has done only once in more than 20 years: an increase in the highway fatality rate. Traffic deaths climbed to 30,800 in 2012, pushing the fatality rate up to 1.13 per 100 million miles traveled. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tried to downplay the news, noting that "highway deaths over the past five years continue to remain at historic lows."
