Lean Auto Safety

The National Safety Council estimates 38,300 people were killed and 4.4 million injured on U.S. roads in 2015, which saw the largest one-year percentage increase in half a century. This will make 2015 the deadliest year on U.S. roads since 2007. The number of injuries and the costs associated with traffic accidents also rose significantly, according to estimates from NSC’s statistics department. Nearly 2.3 million “serious injuries,” which the NSC defines as those requiring medical consultation, were sustained during the six-month period January through June 2015, up 30 percent when compared with the first half of 2014. In a similar upward trend, the estimated costs of these crashes—including medical expenses, wage and productivity losses and property damage—increased 24 percent, to roughly $152 billion. All of this despite ongoing, year over year, automotive safety advances. It is safe to say that automobiles are safer today than they have ever been. (Or, are they?) Meanwhile, commercial passenger air travel in the U.S. has not had a single death in over seven years. (All of this despite ongoing, year over year, air safety advances) It is safe to say that commercial air travel is safer today than it has ever been. Why then are [...]
