On a National scale, more Americans lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes during the first six months of 2022 than in any other first half of the year since 2006, though the numbers over the past three months indicate that things may slowly be heading in the right direction.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released its Early Estimate of Motor Vehicle Traffic Fatalities for the First Half of 2022 report, examining nationwide data to determine trends in traffic-related fatalities.

According to the report, the latest statistical projections show an estimated 20,175 motor vehicle fatalities in the first six months of 2022, up approximately 0.5% from the 20,070 fatalities reported in the first half of 2021, and roughly 35% from the 14,953 recorded in 2011.

The estimated 20,175 traffic deaths in the first six months of 2022 represent the highest number of January-through-June fatalities since 2006, data shows.

The report found that vehicle miles traveled increased by about 43.2 billion miles, or 2.8%, in the first six months of 2022, with the fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled slightly decreasing from 1.3 in the first three months of 2021 to 1.27 in 2022.

Five of the 10 NHTSA regions experienced increases in traffic fatalities from the first half of 2021 to the first half of 2022, including an 11% increase in NHTSA Region 2, which includes New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

In New York, there were an estimated 516 traffic deaths in the first six months of 2022, a 7.2% increase from the 481 during the same timespan in 2021.

The rising roadway deaths during the first half of 2022 come on the heels of the deadliest year on U.S. streets in 16 years. In May, the NHTSA released its Early Estimates of Motor Vehicle
Traffic Fatalities for 2021, showing an estimated 42,915 traffic deaths in 2021, a 10.5% increase over the 38,824 recorded in 2020.

The estimated death total marked the highest number since 2005, with the 10.5% rise representing the highest year-to-year increase in the country’s recorded history.

Among the most concerning trends was that fatalities rose among some of the most vulnerable road users, including a 14% increase in senior fatalities, a 13% increase in pedestrian fatalities, a 9% increase in motorcyclist fatalities, and a 5% increase in cyclist fatalities, data showed.

The increased number of deaths can be attributed, in part, to increased dangerous driving behaviors, with a 5% increase in speeding-related fatalities and a 5% increase in alcohol-involved fatalities.
