Clear Roads....To the GRAVE!!!

Just a quirky weird thing I noticed in this article about a new Traffic study:

Drivers in four lucky states enjoyed zero congestion: Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

The articles then goes on for a while about other statistics, (my own Massachusetts is, of course, the second highest in administrative costs per state controlled mile of road.)

Then the article ends with this little statement:

Massachusetts did best on the death scale, with only 0.797 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles. Connecticut came second at 0.865, followed by Vermont at 0.946.New Jersey was 5th with 1.013, followed by New York at 1.039. California took 19th place with 1.315 fatalities.

Montana was the deadliest, with 2.256 fatalities. South Dakota was 49th at 2.215; South Carolina was 48th at 2.211.

So I guess Montana and South Dakota drivers can beat us Bostonians to work... providing they don't die on the way.
