What is the reason that the fatalities of car crashes are the highest they've ever been, and the fatalities are rising?

What is the reason that the fatalities of car crashes are the highest they've ever been, and the fatalities are rising? At least in the US. What has changed to make this happen? Something must have happened.

    maybe this is insignificant, but cars are getting wayyy taller than they should be. so the likelihood of dying in a collision with a pedestrian is higher. im sure youve seen those cars with fronts like 5 feet tall.

      And those cars are way, way too fast for the average moron. The days of family vehicles needing double digits for the 60 mark are long gone, now they're peeling out in four seconds and change in massive two and a half ton bloatmobiles and performing insane suicide bomber overtakes because of that false sense of security.

        Yeah, we unironically need to go back to the days of a <4 second 0-60 times being solely the realm of expensive supercars. I don't like sharing the road with Karen on TikTok screaming at her kids in her 7000lb Kia EV that has the same 0-60 time as a Lambo.

    If this is true its 100% the influx of illegal 3rdies doing what they do.

    Méxicanos que no tiene la pena para vivir y trabajar como antes estan haciendo una pinche desmadre. En la calle, y en la sociadad. Also the new age of drivers are being taught by the previous generation of shitty drivers, which only echoes the habit even more. It just seems like there will always be a crash because someone doesn't understand basic traffic laws, or the other doesn't care about traffic laws.

    It has spiked since 2020, but fatalities per citizen and fatalities per mile driven are still way down from 2005 (and especially from 1970). Heck even the total number of fatalities has gone down despite more people and more miles driven.

      Much of that is a testament to modern vehicle design.
      Only good thing about modern vehicle design as far as im concerned is the safety of these vehicles.

    Pigs don't wanna work anymore, let alone patrol.
    Black folk, NPCs, and Karens are out of control and insane people like me are starting to lose it and acting more aggressively to go along with the rest of em, honestly.
    I've never raged so hard since the pandemic but everyone is really getting out of hand and I'm increasingly having what I think is a reasonable reaction to an unreasonable situation.
    Now that my cars been hit to, I'm really gone.

    If it says no right on red until six and I see you in the bike lane skipping us all with our signals on at 5, I'm going to fricking hit you

        I've lived in Philadelphia for like eight years, but grew up across the river and still work across the river. It's not just the cityBlack folk that are the problem, same shit happens in Jersey too.
        Speeding, no signals, INSANELY LARGE unpredictable stopping distance, running red and contining to turn left after your arrow has gone. Best thing about it is people have gotten for aggressive to, had my life threaten three times this year. Nigggress even reached in my car to try and smack me and the only reason I'm not in jail is because my fricking jap cars locks are different and I couldn't get my door open to beat her to death in the street, and honestly I thank God for that.

        I don't give a frick anymore, I drive with a breaker bar on the passenger seat and next one is going to get it

        Cops are literally just not out there. I can count on one hand the amount of pigs I've seen outside center city this year and same goes for Suburbia over the entire area. They simp;ly don't want to work anymore, which is hilarious because they barely did in the first place

        Aren't y'all drunk driving rednecks who don't obey traffic rules?
        Why do you turn into a bootlicker any time a brown person is mentioned

        There's a difference between going 40 in a 30 and driving up the shoulder, disregarding what lanes are for, etc

        Drunk rednecks still drive better than brown people it's actually crazy.

        Why are white people the only ones who can drive? Even Asians suck at it

        Because we have respect and allow others to hold us accountable and teach us when we're wrong unlike this 'im grown/you dont run this block' Black person bullshit I keep hearing from them

    Giant vehicles, zoomers and women on tiktok, minorities who "be on dey sailphoam and shieet". Cars have a low barrier of entry, any moron can basically drive and finance a car. If you;re the kind of person that needs something like lane assist or automatic braking you shouldnt be driving. Also because modern vehichles are safer for drivers it gives people a false sense of security, its like a giving a kid a helmet/saftey gear for a skatebaord, they are more likeley to attempt stupid shit because they feel safe that they wouldnt attempt without all the gear

        Rednecks live in rural areas. They drive their shitty ol pickup at 20 mph into a ditch, stumble home or sleep in it and their frens will get it the next day. My stepdad did that at least 5x
