Deaths on United States roads fell slightly from 41,821 in 2000 to 41,730 in 2001, the National Transportation Safety Board has revealed. Road deaths account for about 94% of all transportation deaths in the US, which last year increased 0.6% to 44,461. Air fatalities rose from 779 to 1,162 in 2001, largely as a result of the deaths resulting from the terrorist hijackings on 11 September.
