Is fatality-free travel on North Carolina's streets and highways feasible? It's time to think the unthinkable.

Abstract

The persistent downward trajectory in the traffic fatality rate during the past 90 years suggests that fatality-free travel on North Carolina's streets and highways may one day be a reality. Multiple interventions, including raising the driving age to 17 years and banning cell phone use, will help North Carolina achieve this vision.
