Traffic Safety Facts 2009: Early Edition

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released the Early Edition of its Traffic Safety Facts 2009 report. The report includes current 2009 data and final 2008 data. The report contains exposure data and other data points that customarily are not available until later. Instead of withholding the entire report until those data are available, the Early Edition is produced to allow access to the statistics that are currently available.
