Chart of the Day: Change in Road Fatalities in Different Countries

Just a chart comparing the US “progress” on ending road fatalities against other countries. One of the things that makes per capita road deaths hard to compare for the US is our high rate of overall miles travelled. Fatalities measured against miles traveled (as opposed to population) makes the US seem safer.

That said, we haven’t been making that much progress, as is shown in this chart.

Of course, I’m really interested in pedestrian fatalities… Are there any charts out there depicting that statistic?

    Breaks fatalities & injuries down by type of user (driver, passenger, pedestrian, bicycle, etc.) for most countries.
