Ohio's Bloody Roads
Traffic deaths grew 4% in 2012 from 1,015 in 2011 to 1,056. Compare that to Ohio's homicides in 2011 of 513. Sounds like your chances are better stiffing your pimp than driving to work…..
While police fall all over themselves patting themselves on the back when fatalities go down, the Fishwarp reports:
A patrol spokeswoman says it’s too soon to tell why the number of fatalities rose.
Ohio's roadways are a killing field. The bloody folly must end. BUILD PASSENGER RAIL NOW.

WOW, how timely, for me at least. Someone remarked on twitter how her co-workers thought she was crazy going downtown because she'll get mugged. I told her they'd get killed on the highway before they got mugged.
And here it is.
