Auto death chart

A recent NY Times article contained this excellent graph with annotations that really explains how various things have affected road fatalities over time. While we've always known there is a trend of deaths per mile traveled decreasing over the years, by plotting deaths over miles traveled year by year, we see how things like muscle cars increase deaths and seat belts and air bags decrease them.

If you can't read it above, jump to the article and see the details. Fascinating!
