Everday, in 2015, 96.142 pedestrians or cyclists were killed by motor vehicles in the US.

Of course, most are just part of the statistical noise and go unnoticed by the media.
Without celebrity or graphic terror, there is no news value.

But, let's not be naive, the world is not a kind place for many.
That 100 is just a fraction of the noise that goes unnoticed.

Uhm. I think your numbers are wrong.

2015: 5376 pedestrians and 818 cyclists killed by cars. This is of the 35092 total killed in car crashes in that year. (17.7%).

That works out 16.97 per day ( against a total deaths by car per day of 96.142. )


Still startling, but it just reenforces how ludicrously bad drivers are, and that despite increased safety efforts, the numbers aren't going down.

It's a millennial issue now
I'm more concerned about going to Mars so we have a 2nd planet to screw-up.
