first detected in December of 2019. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO)
declaredit to be a
global pandemic. By March 13, COVID-19 was
declareda national emergency by President Donald Trump. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has since
expandedon the national emergency declaration in the United States to provide HOS relief for commercial vehicle drivers transporting emergency aid.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has encouraged many

Motor vehicle crash deaths in the US are still too high.
There were more than 32,000 crash deaths in the US in 2013. These deaths cost more than $380 million in direct medical costs.
Major risk factors for crash deaths in the US.
- Not using seat belts, car seats, and booster seats contributed to over 9,500 crash deaths.
- Drunk driving contributed to more than 10,000 crash deaths.
- Speeding contributed to more than 9,500 crash deaths.
Reducing major risk factors could save thousands of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in direct medical costs each year.
Seat belts saved over 12,500 lives in the US in 2013, yet:
- The US had lower-than-average front and back seat belt use compared with other high-income countries.
- About half of drivers or passengers who died in crashes in the US weren’t buckled up.

|Total Vehicle Sales||11.4M|
|Domestic Vehicle Sales||9.1M|
Unit sales of motor vehicles, published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis at the beginning of each month, include domestic sales and imports. Domestics are sales of autos produced in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Imports are U.S. sales of vehicles produced elsewhere. The data track all passenger cars and light trucks up to 14,000 pounds gross weight (including minivans and sport utility vehicles). Though totals include a relatively small portion sold to businesses, motor vehicle sales are good indicators of trends in consumer spending and often are considered a leading indicator at business cycle turning points.
Since motor vehicle sales are an important element of consumer spending, market players watch this closely to get a handle on the direction of the economy. The pattern of consumption spending is one of the foremost influences on stock and bond markets.

- Males die 6 times more often and are injured 4 times more often on bicycles than females.3
- Most bicyclist deaths occur in urban areas and at non-intersection locations.4
- Among bicyclist deaths, 37% had alcohol involvement either for the motor vehicle driver or bicycle rider.4
