Something I learned from this story: 1 in 200 Americans have killed another person while driving a car.

just called CPD 15 minutes ago to report a reckless driver. People seem to forget that their vehicles are moving death machines

I was involved in one myself, although it was due to a careless driver striking me head-on (killed his passenger)

thanks. It was quite an ordeal, but I feel more for the family of the teenage girl who lost her life due to a showoff boyfriend

Don't know if these add up. 1.There r often multiple fatalities 2.Often drivers die as well. Both reduce 'killed another'

This assumes every driver survives every accident *and* causes 1 bystander death *and* never repeats this fatal mistake

*and* also assumes every driver in fatal accident over 30 years is still with us today.

Should be American *drivers* and there are questions about how the figure was calculated. I have some ideas and will look at the data.

Not to take away from the story, but it's not as high as 1 in 200. That assumes that we have had the same drivers for 30 yrs

Funny way of wording it. If you bought a car from somebody who killed somebody in a car crash wouldn't that technically count?

Or if you borrowed a friend's car and that friend had killed somebody, then you'd be behind the wheel of a vehicle that killed somebody...

What does it look like when you apply the 4.4 million injured every year?

And yet we are afraid of and hate on foreigners. Here's a better idea hate on drivers and doing the killing.
