NOTE: Fatalities in this table include passenger car occupants only. Occupants of other vehicle types - light trucks, heavy trucks, motorcycles, and buses - are excluded as are other types of highway related fatalities such as pedestrian fatalities. Hence, the fatalities represented here are lower then those in table 2-1. Percents may not add to totals due to rounding.
