According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 136,053 people die every year from automobile accidents, placing this category in the fourth-place position for leading causes of death in the nation. That means for every 100,000 people, 10 of them will die in a crash. Given that there are 318.9 million people in the U.S., it comes out to be around 32,000 people who are killed in car accidents each year. Looking at it like this, it sounds like the chances of you or a loved one never being part of the unfortunate 10 in every 100,000 is pretty good, until you realize that’s the highest rate in the entire world.That kind of puts things into perspective. But why are Americans such bad drivers? Isn’t this why we practice and take tests before we can even get licenses? Apparently, that just isn’t enough.
