Would be more meaningful if broken down by regions (on the level roughly equivalent to a county).

Look how low Japan is. There might be an uptick this year from that arson case.

That's your standard complaint, Abdul, but sorrily I don't do the graphics nor the stats. Feel free to find and post more detailed ones. :wink:

Out of curiosity:
https://en.radiofarda.com/a/iran-road-a ... 29286.html
Nearly 280,000 have been killed and more than four million injured in car accidents in over a decade in Iran, says the Islamic Republic's traffic police chief.

Iran, with a population of over eighty million has always been at the top of the international table for deadly car accidents since the downfall of the monarchy and advent of the Islamic Republic in 1979.

Out of 190 countries, Iran has more deadly car accidents on the roads, immediately after Sierra Leone, a report compiled by the country's Central Insurance's research department says.

Speaking at the fringes of a ceremony commemorating car accident victims, traffic police chief, Taqi Mehri, said that 16,201 people lost their lives in car accidents in Iran, during the last Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2016-March 21, 2017).

"Since 2005, 277,000 have been killed and 4,300,000 injured in car accidents across the country," said the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps General Mehri, adding, "Fifty percent of those killed in car accidents are 20-50-year old, while 8% of the victims are children."

Well fuck, don't bother bombing them, just drop cars and trucks. And free gas.

Cheaper and would kill more people.

Those numbers do not line up with wiki

Not even close.

Wiki is right, until it's not, then it might be right again. Depends on when you look at it.

I picked it up on Reddit, and the author says his data are from this WHO paper.

Here is another map (animated): https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/deat ... -incidents. Different numbers.

Don’t worry, I’m sure if you keep ploughing ahead you’ll eventually hit the median!
