Motor Vehicle Deaths in 2020 Estimated to be Highest in 13 Years, Despite Dramatic Drops in Miles Driven.
Surprising, I would have thought a drop in deaths by 25% over 2019. I wonder what the cause is. Self driving cars can't come soon enough.
You have a lot of people that went out and bought vehicles so they could avoid buses and subways, and most of them I bet are unskilled drivers.
I bet the number of fender benders are through the roof.
That's basically it. Less people, faster speeds and more risky maneuvers.
