Each year, more than 33,000 people in the U.S. die in a car accident, according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Fatality Analysis Reporting System. In fact, car crashes are a leading cause of death in the country for people aged 1 to 54, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says. It’s clear that no matter what kind of car you drive, it’s important to stay alert behind the wheel, whether you’re just running a quick errand or going on a long road trip. But research does show that there are certain cars that tend to be involved in more deadly crashes than others.
A recent 2021 study by ValuePenguin Insurance looked at car crash data from the NHTSA to determine which car models were most often involved in fatal accidents. The data was recorded from 2013 to 2018, and it showed that one popular vehicle was involved in nearly 11,000 deadly accidents during the five-year period, far more than any other car. Wondering how trustworthy your truck, sedan, or SUV is, and which car is the deadliest of them all? Read on.

Hard facts on bike usage, production, sales, imports, exports and trade are
hard to come by. Many of the best statistics are buried in papers that are presented at conferences
such as VeloCity, ProBike and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). Sometimes these
papers are published after the conferences but it can then be difficult to get a
hold of the proceeding, and then they aren’t very well indexed so you have to go
through all of all of them to extract anything that might be useful to you.

Short Description about Automotive Electric Seat Switch Market:
The power seat switch makes it easy for you to adjust your seat into that perfect, comfortable driving position. That makes your daily commute much more bearable, and does wonders for long trips. When you press the power seat switch down on the side of your seat, it sends a command to a small electric motor that moves the seat in whatever direction you chose—forward, backwards, up, down and even tilted. Power seats and the switches that come with them are becoming more and more common on newer cars, replacing the older system, where seats had to be positioned manually.

Transit agencies like the New York State Department of Transportation, the Department of Motor Vehicles and Capital District Transportation Authority are encouraging people to fill out the census because its results affect how more than $675 billion in federal funding is spent on transportation.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the federal Department of Transportation’s Highway Planning and Construction program alone distributed more than $38 billion, the fourth-largest amount of federal funding that was impacted by census results.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development distributed billions more in community development block grants, which are discretionary funds that local governments can choose to use on roads.
Census data also affects which areas are classified as urban and which as rural. This categorization impacts eligibility for federal funds. For example, the U.S. DOT’s Urbanized Area Formula Grants are extended to urban areas and to governors to spend on transportation in urban areas. The U.S. DOT defines an urban area as “an incorporated area with a population of 50,000 or more,” with the population count determined by the census.
According to the George Washington Institute of Public Policy at George Washington University, an undercount, which would lead to an underestimate of a state’s population, would result in a lower share of transportation funding for that state, while undercounted local areas would also receive less project funding.
State agencies rely on census results to inform how money is spent on transportation infrastructure. Many states, for example, use census numbers to allocate revenue from gasoline sales tax.
Data from another survey conducted by the Census Bureau, the American Community Survey, is used by the Census Transportation Planning Products program to provide state and metropolitan transportation agencies with more detailed information about how people travel.
CDTA: Starting Monday, April 6, fare collection will be suspended on all CDTA services, including paratransit services, as passengers are asked to use the rear doors to board and exit buses. Those with wheelchairs, mobility issues or other special needs may use the front door. This step is the latest in an effort to encourage social distancing whenever possible.
The CDTA’s revised weekday schedule remains in effect.
CDTC: The Capital District Transportation Committee has published its directory of senior transportation options. This provides senior citizens with the name, contact information, services and fees of the options available in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady counties. The CDTC cautions that some of the information may be altered because of the coronavirus pandemic and advises users to call providers or check their website for updates.

In Chicago, the City Tech Collaborative launched a months-long project to collect data related to curb activity to help the city better manage how curb space is used, according to Government Technology.
The initiative is designed to create a “practical, usable, scalable analytics tool to better understand the curb,” which has been described as phase one, Jamie Ponce, director of strategic partnerships at City Tech Collaborative, tells Government Technology.
The publication reports:
The project will include private sector partners like Bosch and HERE Technologies to provide various levels of support and expertise. For example, HERE Technologies will analyze traffic movement, congestion and other data points to identify bottlenecks “and areas of friction,” Ponce explained. The data gathered will enable the researchers to take a closer look at what’s causing some of the curb space management problems, all part of Phase I, which will largely be a mapping exercise to digitize the curb.
The next phase of the project will analyze all of that data and help the city craft new approaches. Curbs are often used for parking in cities, but data analysis of curbside usage can help them determine how curbs are used and how to price access to them differently, Billy Riggs, a researcher and professor with expertise in transportation and smart mobility at the University of San Francisco, tells Government Technology.
“It’s also important to think about the curb as barrier but a continuum of the street,” Riggs says. “And given the trends in many locations to support car-free cities, many municipalities also need to take a hard look at what type of travel should be allowed on certain corridors — not just thinking about using the curb, but thinking about if it should even exist.”

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, just seconds after a rider unlocks a dockless electric scooter with a smartphone app and starts motoring around, information about the trip is fed to a city-operated database, according to the New York Times.
Then, just after the trip ends, another alert updates the database, noting the location. A day later, the Times notes, the exact route the rider took is uploaded and logged for analysis.
As the Times reports, that kind of data is also a key to solving congestion in cities, since knowing “what route riders have used historically makes it possible for policymakers to plan infrastructure.”
“Cities have to assure that their resources are used efficiently, and that includes the shared spaces,” Stephen Zoepf, chief of policy development at Ellis & Associates, a consultancy that advises cities on the intersection between transportation and technology, tells the Times. “The effects of crowding, in noise and emissions, are a tragedy of the commons.”
Communities across America have access to Transportation Alternatives (TA) funds from the federal government to expand travel choice, strengthen the local economy, improve the quality of life, and protect the environment. The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) was established by Congress in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012 (MAP-21). The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act of 2015 replaces TAP with a TA Set-Aside (TASA) of the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program, a core Federal-aid Highway Program. Eligible activities include most activities historically funded as “Transportation Enhancements,” the Recreational Trails Program, and the Safe Routes to School program.
At the Transportation Alternatives Data Exchange by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, we help stakeholders at the Federal, State, and local level understand and implement this program. Follow the links to learn the basics of the TA program or to access state-specific information.
