Another reason not to drive

A woman crashed her car into a utility pole about a block from my apartment. A colleague saw the fire last night. Just another example of the carnage that we accept on a daily basis from our transportation system.

Transit buses are over 170 times safer than cars, with rail over 400 times safer. Cycling is roughly 50% safer than driving on a per-hour basis, and cyclists generally spend fewer hours on their bikes than drivers in their cars.
