Highway Death Rates in Europe Now Fewer than in U.S...

Jump to last reply

reversing a trend that not long ago had deaths per mile driven in most European countries much higher than in U.S.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/19/opinion/america-is-now-an-outlier-on-driving-deaths.html

Like France not long ago about 25 deaths per billion miles driven and now about 5.

whilst U.S. was about 13 and and is now about 7. And every major European country cited was higher and now lower than U.S.

No doubt zero tolerance in countries like France about alcohol levels and speed controls thru cameras, etc and better roads and safer cars may be factors (though one would think Europe's smaller cars could be more dangerous?

Anyway rather interesting that we in U.S. have seemingly lagged in improving safety on our roads vs what Europe has done.
