Let's see. Does a van load of illegal immigrants traveling at 65 mph killed in an interstate rollover in Iowa when the driver fell asleep at the wheel while on their way to Chicago count in this increase? Does the increasing number of vehicles on the road figure in? The correlation between increased speed and number of deaths is flawed. There are too many other factors not mentioned here as probables. Another case of statistics used to further someone's agenda so it reads to me. what a surprise.

Absolutely. The increase in traffic across the country is astounding. States are looking at widening antiquated interstates, and creating lanes for trucks, to lighten the number of vehicles.
