The rate of US automotive fatalities per 100 million miles driven is 6.3 percent worse than I’d previously mentioned:
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today released the Early Estimate of Motor Vehicle Traffic Fatalities for the First Half (January-June) of 2021, which shows the largest six-month increase ever recorded in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System’s history. An estimated 20,160 people died in motor vehicle crashes in the first half of 2021, up 18.4% over 2020. That’s the largest number of projected fatalities in that time period since 2006.
Preliminary data from the Federal Highway Administration show that vehicle miles traveled in the first half of 2021 increased by about 173.1 billion miles, or about 13%. The fatality rate for the first half of 2021 increased to 1.34 fatalities per 100 million VMT.
This rate is very, very high, as it is 18.8 percent higher than the 2011-2019 average, and precludes any innocuous – and retarded – explanations such as “well, people forgot how to drive during lockdown.” The vaxx is insidious, as it is killing people in a broad variety of ways, each of which has various forms of superficially plausible deniability.
