Blog Assignment #2: Assigned Statistic

Statistic: Motor vehicle fatalities

Source : Monk, John. "2010 Traffic Deaths Lowest in Decades." The State: South Carolina (2011). Web. .

1. Citizens of South Carolina would be interested in these statistics, and possibly comparing these stats to other states.
2. These "unofficial" stats are collected by the South Carolina Department of Public Safety Office of Highway Safety, collected every year.
3. In 2010, the total state traffic fatalities came to about 770, which is a 14% drop in fatalities in motor vehicle crashes from the year before. "...the third year of decreases", stated S.C. Department of Public Safety director Mark Keel. Also connecting with the drop in fatalities, a survey was taken in 2006, resulting that 72% of people buckled up. The same survey taken again in 2010, 85% of people reported buckling up.
