Driving In The Urban Hellhole

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.
