We All Pay for Crashes
  • When you are involved in a traffic crash:
      • You pay: Insurance premiums, fines and fees, time off work, rehabilitation, vehicle repair/replacement….
  • When others are involved in traffic crashes you pay:
      • The general public pays nearly ¾ of all crash costs, primarily through insurance premiums, taxes, delays and lost productivity. {NHTSA, Economic Impact, 2002}
      • The average costs per fatal crash in Ohio is more than $3.4 million. Costs include medical care, lost productivity, property damage and an increased strain on community services.
