Over the last 10 years, more than 18,000 people have died in motor vehicle crashes in Canada. These crashes generally don't grab national headlines. Unless you've lost a friend or family member, you might not even hear about them, but there are thousands of fatal collisions... year after year after year.
If Canadians understood more about how and why these deaths involving motor vehicle crashes occur, perhaps we could take better precautions to prevent them. What, then, are the facts?
