Re: danger Will Robinson

I wonder if the gradual decrease in casualties of all severities is due to design improvements to vehicles such that low speed collisions are less likely to result in serious injury, and these vehicles gradually becoming more commonplace on the roads, whereas the number of road deaths is moderately stable in that it's primarily to do with the statistical chance of incidents where someone will die irrespective of the design of the car (e.g. pedestrian getting hit by a tonne-plus object moving at 70mph)
