According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration traffic fatalities in 2008 are down 10 percent.  This is compared to the same period in 2007.  So, Americans were less likely to be killed on the road in 2008 as compared to 2007.

The NHTSA discussed the number of people killed in vehicle accidents:

August is the month with the highest fatalities (3,612), while March has the lowest fatalities (2,804) during the ten months. When compared to the corresponding months in 2007, the estimates each month reflect a downward trend. While fatalities fell by 2.5 percent in February and 1 percent in August, there were much more significant declines March through July, Septem-ber, and October.


I can’t comment on the relationship of the statistics, but the NHTSA also discusses how helmet use and seat belt use were up in 2008 as compared to 2007.
