Driving-related fatalities on Arizona's roads continued to decline in 2010, according to an annual report issued today.

The Arizona Department of Transportation's "2010 Crash Facts" report shows 762 people lost their lives in motor vehicle crashes on highways and local roads in the state last year.

That is down from 806 fatalities in 2009 (down 5.46 percent) and marks a significant reduction since 1,301 people died in crashes in 2006. That year, Arizona recorded its highest-ever number of traffic fatalities.

The state's analysis of law enforcement crash reports provided to ADOT in 2010 shows 30 percent of fatal crashes were alcohol-related (210), down from 35 percent of such crashes in 2009.

The most common driver violations in Arizona are "speed too fast for conditions" and "impaired driving."

The complete ADOT 2010 Crash Facts report is available at www.azdot.gov/mvd/statistics/crash/PDF/10crashfacts.pdf.
