Sobering statistics about alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents

Each year roughly 550 New Jersey residents are killed as a result of alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents. The state has begun implementing an annual program called, "Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day!" in an effort to reduce overall traffic deaths. The Department of Law & Public Safety encourages residents to observe each Oct. 10 as a day free of traffic-related fatalities. The goal is to inspire the use of extra caution by every motorist, bicyclist and pedestrian using New Jersey roadways on Oct. 10.

What can pedestrians do to reduce motor vehicle accidents?

According to national statistics compiled in 2010, at least 4,280 people died in accidents involving motor vehicles that year, and another 70,000 suffered injuries. Those numbers mean that a pedestrian was killed in a traffic-related accident ever two hours, and injured in similar accidents every eight minutes. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that statistically pedestrians have a greater probability of being killed per trip, by a likelihood of 1.5 times, while walking than if they had been an occupant in a motor vehicle.
