Subject: Re: Driving in Europe
According to the National Highway Trafety Safety Administration, 41821 people died in the US in 2000 in traffic accidents. There were 275,562,673 people in 2000 (as of July 2000) - which comes to about 151.8 deaths per million. That means the US is slightly more dangerous than Belgium/Luxembourg. I'm a little surprised - I thought it would be higher.

Another web site had statistics per miles driven which would make an interesting comparison, since I think that most people in the US drive a lot more than most Europeans.
