Tribal Transportation Safety
As a Nation, the U.S. has a substantial commitment to identify causes of and solutions to motor vehicle safety issues. Motor vehicle crashes leave an indelible mark on virtually every community; traveling our national roadways network by car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or as a pedestrian, is a daily requirement for a large segment of the population, from infants to grandparents. This is especially true for the Native American and Alaska Native populations of our country whom experience higher rates of fatal injuries associated with transportation than does the population as a whole. More than 2750 Native Americans and Alaska Natives lost their lives in reported roadway crashes from 2007-2011.
