|New CDC Widget to Help States Select Strategies to Reduce Injuries from Motor Vehicle Crashes|
Every day, more than 100 people die in motor vehicle crashes and thousands more are injured. The economic impact is notable: in 2015, the cost of medical care and productivity losses associated with occupant injuries and deaths from motor vehicle traffic crashes exceeded $63 billion.
More can be done to prevent crashes and reduce injuries. State-level changes are especially effective. CDC is releasing a widget in support of the Motor Vehicle Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States (MV PICCS 3.0), a free interactive calculator that helps states and state decision makers prioritize and select from 14 effective motor vehicle injury prevention strategies.
The MV PICCS widget provides each state with:
