2020 Early Estimates of Motor Vehicle Traffic Fatalities and Fatality Rate by Sub-Categories

“Fatalities in police-reported, alcohol-involved crashes, as a percentage of all fatalities, increased in June (21% [20] versus 20% [19]), August (21% [20] versus 19% [19]), and October and November (18% [20] versus 17% [19]). Total estimated fatalities in police-reported, alcohol-involved crashes increased by 9 percent from 2019 to 2020. This measure is different from NHTSA’s traditional reporting of alcohol impaired-driving crashes, which is based on both reported and imputed blood alcohol concentration (BAC) values. BAC values have a significant reporting lag and will be finalized later this year, which is why this analysis used police-reported alcohol involvement to get an indication of changes from 2019 to 2020.”
