|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.
