I saw a tweet comparing U.S.A. / U.K. road toll statistics:
I'd say you wouldn't want to drive on US roads on holiday this summer. The UK has a population of 65m; the US is six times bigger at 325m. However, deaths on UK roads were 1792 in 2016 but in the US it was 37,461 – that's 20 times as many. Why is it so riskily dangerous there?— Giles Chapman (@ChapmanOnCars) June 28, 2018
A horrific crash led yesterdays news, prompting much discussion about road safety, and I wondered how NZ compared. While better than the US the results are not great, especially considering one is one too many.
