NTSB reports decline in fatalities

October 6, 2010, 01:15 pm

Regardless of the mode of transportation, reaching one's destination was safer last year. The National Transportation Safety Board reports that fatalities declined more than 9 percent between 2008 and 2009.

There were 538 aviation-related fatalities last year, down from 574 in 2008. The NTSB says that 90 percent of all aviation fatalities are a result of general aviation accidents.

NTSB Chairman Deborah Hersman says that while the decline in transportation-related fatalities is a step in the right direction, more lives can still be saved.

"While statistics show that transportation fatalities have declined this past year," says Hersman, "we continue to see far too many accidents in all segments of the transportation community. There is still much work to do to prevent the loss of life on our roads, rails, waterways, and skies."

Given the potential fatality rate for those in general aviation, investing in life insurance is a good idea. A life insurancepolicy can help provide financial assistance to loved ones in the event of the policyholder's death. People can begin researching quotes online and through contacting insurance providers directly.
