• Beat Bike Blog: Cars kill more people than guns

    Sobering statistic from our friends in Connecticut.
    The automobile, a tool invented to safely transport people with all its crumple zones, airbags, seat belts, safety glass, computers and various safety systems, kills more people every year in the United States than the gun; a tool invented to kill.

    Over the last few decades – roughly speaking – every year fire arm deaths are in the 30,000’s and motor vehicle deaths in the 40,000’s.

    Year           Firearms               Motor Vehicles
    1999………..28,874………………….41,717
    2000………..28,663………………….41,945
    2004………..29,569………………….42,836
    2007………..31,224………………….41,059

    Facts were drawn from Wikipedia and the CDC. Read the full blog post HERE.

      There are lots of small and big road accidents are taken place. So many people killed by car and other vehicles accidents. These figures are unexpected from me.
