I wonder how many less people will die on the roads through the duration of these stay-at-home orders? I’m out and about, driving all over the DC area for my work and there is hardly anybody on the roads.

It will be interesting to see those statistics.

That's a pretty good guess, I've heard it's roughly 1 every 12 seconds, that's for past years. Births are somewhat higher maybe 10k a day, almost 3.8 mill born in 2018.

Here's an indication from part of March

Quote:
The fire department of the city of Seattle, Washington, classified just 28 calls from March 17-23 as involving a motor vehicle incident. This is almost 50% fewer than the typical week since the start of 2019. In Los Angeles, California, there were also about half as many traffic collisions reported to the police from March 15-21 as is normally the case.

Not just traffic accidents but also crime is down

Even in Detroit and Chicago
