Confused about the traffic death data....?

Comparing January - April 2020 to same in 2021?

Well in March and April 2020 many people were at home due to Covid lockdown or were sick, so comparing 2020 to 2021 is not really fair.
What about comparing 2019 and 2021?

Also worth noting many more motorcycle accidents - more people were using motorcycles during Covid.

And due to ecommerce tsunami + Covid, an explosion in delivery trucks.
