  • Description:
    Motor vehicle crashes are a serious problem in tribal communities:

    • Crashes are the leading cause of death for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) ages 1–44.

    • AI/AN people have the highest alcohol- related motor vehicle death rates of all racial groups.

    • AI/AN people use car seats, booster seats, and seat belts at a rate much lower than the national rate.

    Tribal governments and local health professionals can make a difference. Below are proven strategies to reduce drinking and driving and increase the use of car seats that you can use to reduce crash-related injuries and deaths in Tribal Nations.
