Kentucky Vehicle Fatalities for 2006

Driving into Louisville this morning the TRIMARC signs were showing how many people died on the roads in 2005 and 2006.

They listed the number dead in 2005 at 976 while the deceased for 2006 was 899.

I wonder if increased safety laws, better road barriers, and safer vehicles contributed to this. We have stricter safety belt laws now, the transportation department has been installing cable barriers between roads that have opposite flowing traffic, and more vehicles have airbags and traction control systems.
