While road deaths in the USA during the year 2003 declined by 1% (the figures vary, depending on which part of the political spectrum you are, from 43,005 in 2002 down to 42,643 in 2003 and 2.89 million people injured), motorcycle related deaths increased dramatically by 12%, resulting in 3,661 deaths. No explanation is given why the motorcycle death toll has risen so much.

According to some groups, the current Bush Administration is massaging the figures for their own political benefits (it is an election year after all). Alcohol related deaths have decreased by 2.9% !

Following is a table with all the states and their figures:
