It must be fatalities per incident, not total incidents. Because usually there are no accidents in the rural areas around me, but on the very few occasions that there are, typically someone dies. In city driving, there are accidents all the time becuase people are dumbasses and don't pay attention, so as was already said they rearend someone at 10mph and everyone'* fine. When your going 60 on a backroad and decide not to slow down for the 15mph curve then typically the tree that you encounter while going through the ditch and field and whatnot has a little bit more of an impact than a 10mph collision in town. There is no way it is talking about total number of fatalities overall.

That right there is 100% the truth. I've heard of vehicle/tree collisions in the country resulting in fatalities. However, I have never heard of vehicles colliding with eact other out there. REMEMBER, where are all the mint 40 year old cars? Oh yea, the COUNTRY.
