NOTES: Air includes commercial and general aviation. Waterborne includes commercial and recreational vessels. See note on table 60 for complete information on inclusions by mode and definitions of light and large trucks. Commercial aviation data for 2001 do not include fatalities that resulted from the terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, DC.
Figure 62 excludes the motorcycle occupant fatality rate data, because the rate is much higher than for the other selected highway modes. Those data are available on table 62 in appendix B.
