Never Enough Car Safety Department

According to the World Health Organization, up to four times as many people die in traffic-related incidents than they do from warfare. The majority of the deaths are in third-world countries. Still, is it any wonder I hate cars?

The statistics also show that suicide kills more people than murder does, especially in Europe and East Asia. This also is not surprising, although I would like to see if that trend continues in the US, and in particular on a city-by-city basis.
