A timelapse photo of busy urban streetsSome good news: the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that 2018 has shown a 2.4 percent decrease in the number of traffic fatalities across the United States. The report notes that this is the second consecutive year that the traffic fatality rate has declined. NHTSA also notes that 2019 is on track to show a similar decline.
