42,800 people died on the nation's highways in 2004 Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta said the nation was "in the midst of a national epidemic" "If this many people were to die from any one disease in a single year, Americans would demand a vaccine."
And we should put money towards public transportation, the current transportation system is insane. People in the future will look back at our time and think we were barbarians for allowing over 40,000 Americans to die on the road every year. It doesn't have to be this way.
