No one wants to be involved in a car accident. Even a minor fender bender can be a hassle busy individuals don't have time for, and more serious collisions can derail a person's entire life. According to information published by Louisiana State University, overall non-commercial accident rates may be down in 2014 when compared to previous years.
The study used accident numbers from Sept. 2013 though Sept. 2014 to estimate crash rates for 2014. According to the estimates, injury crash rates for 2014 were 758 per every 100,000 registered vehicles, compared to 974 in 2009. Between 2009 and 2010, numbers fell almost every year, for a combined five-year reduction of around 22 percent.
