According to a recent study performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Prince George’s County lead the region in most traffic-related deaths in 2005, with more than double the number of fatalities of any counties in Maryland, Virginia or the District of Columbia.

Pedestrian-vehicle deaths in the county increased by nearly 100 percent in 2005, up from 18 in 2004 to 35 in 2005 — nearly as many as the entire Washington region combined, the report showed. The study said that Prince George’s County had 134 traffic-related fatalities in 2005, up from 120 in 2004.

For more details about this study, please see the Washington Examiner story.

Now, more than ever, it is important for drivers to be aware of the dangers that accompany the reckless or improper use of motor vehicles. For an excellent resource containing traffic safety regulations, articles, and studies, please visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website.
