U.S. motor vehicle traffic fatalities in 2021 break record for largest annual percentage increase in recorded history
May 25, 2022WASHINGTON, D.C.
— We wrote a story about Ms. Jessica Turner on August 23, 2021. The 34-year-old mother of three received her first Pfizer mRNA injection on August 1. Five days later, she had a seizure while driving on a busy interstate with two of her three children in the car. Luckily nobody was hurt
. We posited that nationwide disaster is imminent with millions of vaxxed drivers and, more worrisome, truck and bus drivers, behind the wheels of vehicles moving at 75 mph (120 km/hr) or more. Government data are proving our case.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released its report last week covering estimated traffic fatalities in 2021. NHTSA, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation, found that 42,915 people died on U.S. roadways in 2021, a 10.5% increase from 2020. The number of fatalities represents the most since 2005, while the percentage increase year-over-year is the largest since the NHTSA’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System commenced in 1975.
A deeper look at the numbers tells a more detailed story. Multi-vehicle crashes were up 16% from 2020 to 2021. Urban (city) road fatalities, drivers over 65 fatalities, and fatalities involving semi-trucks were up 16%, 14% and 13%, respectively. The mRNA and viral vector DNA injections became widely available to most Americans by March 2021. There were 2,553 traffic fatalities in March 2020, compared to 3,220 in March 2021, a 26% increase year-over-year. April was even worse, with 2,320 fatalities in 2020 versus 3,570 in 2021, a 54% increase.
Some blame the foregoing monthly differences on the lockdowns in March and April 2020. But there were also more total traffic fatalities in 2020 (38,842) versus 2019 (36,355), according to NHTSA data. In fact the 2020 totals represented the most fatalities since 2007.

The three most dangerous places for Americans (and all other “Westerners”) to patronize in 2022 are hospitals, airplanes and roadways. But the latter has created yet another code word for vaccine deaths and/or injuries. We know “died suddenly and unexpectedly” means vaccine death. And now “medical episode” is the new code word for vaccine-related traffic accidents and death.
Elderly driver in Michigan killed in car crash (April 25)
A 75-year-old Hartland, Michigan man was driving on Highland Road at 9:24 a.m. in his 2019 Buick Encore on April 25, according to The Livingston Post
. The unidentified man suffered a “medical episode” and veered into a median. The vehicle struck several traffic signs before coming to a stop. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Alcohol and speed were ruled out as contributing factors. It appears he was dead before the car came to a stop.
Laurie Rabyor – the Boynton Beach, Florida near-disaster (May 5)
What turned out to be a regional good Samaritan story could have been a national tragedy. Ms. Laurie Rabyor had just gotten off work from her job as a seamstress at The Shading Source in Boynton Beach, Florida on May 5. She suffered a “medical episode” (lost consciousness) while in her running car at the busy intersection of Congress Avenue and Woolbright Road. Her car slowly began drifting into oncoming traffic.
Ms. Jannette Rivera, a co-worker who had also just gotten off her shift, saw Ms. Rabyor slumped over in the car. Ms. Rivera jumped out of her car in the middle of the intersection, and waved at others to try and help her stop the moving car. Several people jumped out of their cars to stop the vehicle and direct traffic. The surveillance video is quite dramatic.
Elderly driver in Maine killed in car crash (May 14)
Mr. Robert Smith was driving on Saco Road in Hollis, Maine on May 14 at 1 p.m. He suddenly suffered a “medical event” and crashed onto a property
, according to local reports. Mr. Smith, 75, died at the scene
. His brother, who was a passenger in the car, apparently survived. No other details are available. But it sounds like Mr. Smith was dead before the vehicle came to a stop.
Aussie cricketer Andrew Symonds killed in single-car crash (May 14)
It’s not just an American thing. That being said, there is something very strange happening with former Australian cricket players. First it was Mr. Shane Warne, 52, and Mr. Rod Marsh, 74, dying of heart attacks
within eight hours of one another on March 3 and March 4. Mr. Ryan Campbell, another Aussie cricketer, suffered a massive heart attack in London on April 18
. He told The Guardian
two weeks ago that he’s lucky to be alive and that his “odds of survival were 7%
.” Now there’s another Aussie cricketer added to this list.
Mr. Andrew Symonds.
Mr. Andrew Symonds played all three formats of cricket from 1993 to 2011. He was an all-rounder, meaning he was both an exceptional batter and bowler. Mr. Symonds was part of the 2003 and 2007 Australian Cricket World Cup championship teams. He is considered by many to be one of the best all-around cricket players in the history of the sport.
Mr. Symonds was killed a single-car crash about 30 miles (50 km) north of Townsville, Queensland on May 14 at age 46. Queensland Police said Mr. Symonds’ car “left the road and rolled
” at about 11 p.m. Australia media are trying to blame both alcohol
and relationship problems
for his death. But this incident is very consistent with others herein.
Three-vehicle crash in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (May 20)
An unidentified driver suffered a “medical episode” at the 4000 block of First Avenue East in Cedar Rapids at 6:40 p.m. on May 20, according to KCRG Channel 9
. The apparently-unconscious driver veered into oncoming traffic, and crashed into two other vehicles. Luckily, nobody was killed. But at least three people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. There were no reports of alcohol being involved.
SUV crashes into business, but nobody killed (May 20)
An unidentified driver “suffered an apparent medical emergency” on East Oak Street in Pocatello, Idaho at 1:40 p.m. on May 20, according to the Idaho State Journal
. The driver crashed his SUV into an unoccupied parked car. The momentum crashed that vehicle into the outer wall of a local bar called Five Corners. Neither the SUV driver nor the passenger suffered serious injuries.
One dead, one injured in Waco, Texas car crash (May 23)
An unidentified 65-year-old man suffered a “medical episode” while driving on the 1200 block of Elm Street in Waco, Texas on May 23. He crashed into four parked cars, causing his own vehicle to flip on its side. The unidentified driver was pronounced dead later at the hospital. The 83-year-old passenger survived, but suffered from “possible major injuries
.” Again, it appears the driver was dead before the vehicle actually crashed.
Drive only when necessary, especially in big cities
World Economic Forum (WEF) founder Klaus Schwab wants to eliminate car ownership all together
. The organization props up the Spanish city of Pontevedra
as an example. It banned all cars in 1999
. That model is unrealistic in the United States. Thus, Klaus’ goal is all ride share transportation by 2030. It might happen by default if economic conditions continue as is.
Gas prices in California are pricing a lot of people out of driving in the state. The following photo was taken last night in Los Angeles.
It’s best to trust yourself driving versus getting into an Uber, Lyft, taxi, city bus, etc. knowing there’s a 90% chance the driver is genetically-modified. This blogger certainly embraces “social distancing” on highways and busy roadways. Give yourself at least an additional second or two to react in the event of some sudden circumstance.
Vehicular deaths will easily surpass 50,000 in 2022. The U.S. hasn’t seen that many roadway deaths since 1980. The most roadway fatalities in U.S. history in one year is 54,589 in 1972. Don’t be surprised if that record is shattered this year. Stay vigilant and protect your friends and loved ones.
