According to the National Center for Statistics, in 2003, there were
42,643 fatalites that involved motor vehicle traffic crashes.  Of
these fatalities, roughly 5,511 were pedestrians or bicyclists.  This
worked out to 14.66 fatalities per 100,000 population.

In 2003, the population of the United States was estimated at
293,027,571.  The death rate was 8.34 deaths per 1,000 population, or
8,340 deaths per 100,000.

So, using these numbers,  1.7 of every 1,000 deaths in the United
States is related to an autombile related fatality.

Thanks for your question.  If you need any additional information,
please let me know.

Liked the conciseness and the precision of the answer very much.  For
the analyst: As an ancient engineer from Missouri (Class of '49),
where our favorite team hasn't won a football game in living memory, I
can only remark that the 'Ramblin' Wrecks' surely must do better, eh?
