Could Traffic Deaths Eliminated By Lockdown Offset COVID-19 Deaths?

I read a comment somewhere in which someone floated this idea, but I can't find it. Anyway, it's not my thought. I merely pass it on.
   Again, I wonder what things would look like if we measured the relevant effects in terms of loss of expected years of life. I'm sure traffic deaths afflict a younger "demographic" (isn't that an ungrammatical construction?) than the plague. If we added in quality of lost years, the difference would be even more pronounced.
