Abstract

If traffic fatalities in the United States had declined by the same percentage as occurred in any one of seven other countries, 20‚ÄČ000 fewer Americans would be killed each year. So concludes an article in this issue.(1) Here I propose that these additional Americans die because the United States excludes science from influencing traffic-safety policy. This happens largely because of the uniquely powerful role of litigation in the United States. (Am J Public Health.
