U.S. deaths from motor vehicle crashes fell by 31% between 2000 and 2013, compared to an average 56% in 19 other high-income countries, according to Vital Signs report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition to the U.S., countries included in the study were Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. To further reduce road traffic deaths, CDC recommends drivers and passengers use seat belts in both front and rear seats; properly use car seats and booster seats for children through at least age 8; never drink and drive; obey speed limits; and drive without distractions. Among other actions, CDC recommends health care providers share motor vehicle safety resources with patients.
