Motorcycle into car accident
The French Minister of Transport Open link in a new window this week announced the new figures for last month (June 2010) with regards to road deaths.

During June 2010, there was a notable drop in road deaths; a drop of 18.6% over the same month last year. The number of people ending up in a hospital after an accident diminished as well, a drop of 26.7%.

For the first 6 months of the year, this now represents a reduction in number of traffic accidents of 10.6%!

So, on one hand, that's great news. The French car, motorcycle, truck drivers, and pedestrians and cyclists are starting to pay more attention to their behavior, and their speed. But if they road mortality has dropped so much, and we're now "only" talking a couple of hundred people per year, why keep increasing the number of speed radars? Why announce that you are no longer going to tell us that there's a speed radar up ahead? Why invent more types of radars?
