Based on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations (NHTSA) Non-Traffic Surveillance (NTS) system, previously called Not-in-Traffic Surveillance system when it was created in 2007, an estimated average of 1,898 people were killed each year in non-traffic motor vehicle crashes, during the three-year period 2012 to 2014. About a third (34%) of those people killed were non-occupants, such as pedestrians and bicyclists. Additionally, an estimated average of 92,000 people were injured in these crashes each year.
Non-traffic motor vehicle crashes are a class of crashes that occur off the public traffic ways. These crashes are mostly single-vehicle crashes on private roads, two-vehicle crashes in parking facilities, or collisions with pedestrians in driveways. In addition, there are non-traffic incidents such as a vehicle falling on a person underneath or an unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning inside the vehicle.
