    Collision Repair by the Numbers

    A study by K. Rumar, using British and American collision repair reports as data, found that 57% of crashes were due solely to driver factors and 27% due to combined roadway and driver factors. The good news is that according to NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), fatal collision accidents have declined nearly 22% in the last ten years, primarily due to the increase in vehicle safety standards. In addition, the NHTSA states that 32% of traffic fatalities involve drunk driving, 31% involve speeding, 16% involve distractions and 11% are due to bad weather. Over half of all crashes occur on weekends.
