According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motor vehicle crashes killed 41,821 individuals and injured 3,189,000 others in 6.4 million crashes in 2005.

Driver inattention, vehicle speeds, alcohol impairment, perceptual errors, and decision errors, are the leading factors in most crashes and near-crashes.

Through a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety
