Obviously deaths per miles driven isn't the only thing that matters, but it is useful bit of information to highlight the somewhat amusing fact that non-urban dwellers are often completely petrified about driving into the city. Some of this is probably completely rational, as the highways into the city and their offramps are a bit scary (older urban highways often weren't designed awesomely), but once you get used to it actually driving around the city isn't especially hard. I used to be scared of urban driving, too, and now I'm more scared of driving on highways and the burbs. Except in Rome. Damn scooters.
