New York Car Accident Statistics

There are over nine million cars registered in New York State and over 11 million individuals with New York driver’s licenses. With numbers that high, it should come as no surprise that car accidents are a common occurrence in the state of New York, especially in the densely populated areas of Queens, New York City, the Bronx, and Brooklyn. The unfortunate reality is that almost everyone at one time or another in their lives either has been or will be involved in a car accident.

Statistics tabulated by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles indicate that there were over half a million vehicle crashes in 2012, resulting in over 169,000 personal injuries and 1,163 fatalities. That’s one death from a vehicle accident every eight hours.

Overall, more than 10% of all New York vehicle crashes result in moderate to serious personal injury or death to a driver or another vehicle occupant, and well over half of all crashes result in property damage.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Why do all these car accidents happen? Unsurprisingly, most car crashes can be attributed to negligence. Far too many drivers are careless, reckless, or inexperienced, resulting in avoidable mistakes and devastating accidents.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Unsafe passing/merging
  • Traffic violations
  • Tailgating
  • Aggressive/reckless driving
  • Road rage
