US Car Deaths

I was wrong: US Highway deaths are up over the last 10 years. I was right: As a percentage of total highway miles travelled as well as of total US resident population, however, the trend is clearly and steadily down. All these data come from the FARS Encyclopedia.

You are so right to point out that it is deaths per million miles driven that is the accurate measurement of highway safety. Journalists look only at the number of deaths and conclude that highways are more dangerous than ever.
