A recent study released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals the staggering cost of motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. The $871 billion impact stems from $277 billion in economic costs and $594 billion from loss of life and the pain and decreased quality of life due to injuries. 

The main causes of these accidents were boiled down to 5 main contributors: drunk driving, speeding, distraction, pedestrians and bicyclists and seatbelts.
