went looking, and found comparative statistics for 2000 (the latest
information I could find). These were the international comparisons:....


Does each country count road deaths using the same criteria ?


I wonder if some of the differences between some of the countries listed could be explained by having more pedestrians and bus passengers killed than other countries.

A place like Korea having many more pedestrian/bus riders killed than in the USA for example, where buses are pretty safe(for the most part) and lots of the driving is separated from where people walk(Interstate Highways) ??

food for thought
