Exclamation A misleading report

NMA Article: A misleading report

Health researchers stepping out of their field released a report saying Americans die twice as often in car crashes as residents of countries whose bureaucracies they envy. They say the causes are all the things regulators want to throw us in jail for.


The real explanation is simpler and less amenable to handcuffs.


We drive nearly twice as much as other rich countries.


If you compare to other “high-income countries” with at least 30 million residents, and use deaths per mile driven instead of per capita, we rank 5th out of 8. (Safety and GDP from Wikipedia; income cutoff based on the CDC report’s inclusion of Slovenia as a high-income country).


We’re not a world leader like 40 or 50 years ago, when we were first to work hard on road safety. We’re in the middle of our pack.
