Not-in-Traffic Surveillance: Fatality and Injury Statistics in Nontraffic Crashes, 2008 to 2011

The nontraffic motor vehicle crashes are a class of crashes that occur off the public traffic ways. These crashes, subsequently referred to as “nontraffic crashes,” are mostly single-vehicle crashes on private roads, two-vehicle crashes in parking facilities, or collisions with pedestrians on driveways. Then there are also noncrash incidents such as a vehicle falling on a person underneath or unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning. Based on the Not-in-Traffic Surveillance (NiTS) system, on an average, 1,621 people were killed each year in nontraffic motor vehicle crashes during the four year period, 2008 to 2011. About 39 percent of these people were nonoccupants such as pedestrians and bicyclists. Additionally, on an average, 91,000 people were injured in these crashes each year, of which 35 percent were nonoccupants.
