too bad, seems like the thread has been deserted and reached the end of its golden days, and we'll never solve the mystery of the discrepancy in road fatalities.

well, i`ll for one will be checking up on the girls regularly, hoping that they`re well taken care off.

"Lemon, car crash fatalities to drinking age is not a strong correlation."
the statistic correlates fatalities to population at driving age, which is a pretty decent indicator across countries.

ideally, you'd need (a) population who has a license / is actually driving for better accuracy, but i think the percentage of adults with a license are similar in the u.s. and in europe.

(b) a breakup by age would also be more instructive in order to see what the fatality rates are for young adults, but i don`t have them. help me out if you can!

you're of course right, there is a lot of senseless under-age drinking going on in europe. i do suspect, though, that on the whole, it makes a difference that (a) you can drink if you want to (= less thrill of trying something forbidden), and (b) you don`t have to hide it from your parents, making parental supervision easier. of course stupidity is always close around the corner ...

perhaps we should try the middle eastern approach, no drinking whatsoever! (still some consumption of alcohol, of course, but much, much less than in Western countries.

"Lemon, wtf are you talking about with the getting a drivers license? and what makes you an expert on getting a license nowadays? you are listed as being near 50 years old... As someone who recently got their license (like..4 years ago?), its no easier now than it was 30 years ago. likely harder for that matter since laws are stricter and there are more of them"
well, in most countries other than the us you actually have to take A LOT of classes from an approved driving instructor in order to be let loose on the public, requiring about half a year (and USD 1000-2000) for the classes / instructions / tests.

what's your theory why fatalities are so high in the u.s. compared to other countries?

if you don`t agree that the
