It is puzzling that approximately 40,000 people in the U.S. die each year in automobile accidents and yet public concern seems minimal. Compare that with the approximately 2,752 who died at the World Trade Center. That was only about 7% as many people who die each year in auto accidents, and yet it was considered to be a disaster of unprecedented magnitude.
Surely, if we were really concerned about human life, we could cut the road toll in half within a few years. Doing so would require much more thorough driver training and testing, including periodic re-testing. It would also require much more diligent enforcement of traffic laws, including laws against drunk driving.
Americans are more effective at killing Americans than third world nimrods?
How about reducing the speed limit to 35, except for commercially licensed drivers, and mandating governors on personal vehicles so as to mechanically eliminate speeding? This would save lives, reduce fuel consumption, and elevate mass transit as the travel mode of choice.

Court for Burch on 7/13/2009 in James City/Williamsburg Circuit Court. He might get his just due and be sent up river for an entended stay...may I suggest a one way ticket to Red Onion State Prison. Good luck Matthew Burch because I know if you have a conscious you have been living and reliving this tragedy since April 10. However, there is a price to pay for the your actions that night and it's too bad your family must suffer as well. To the Mellis family..I know this trial will bring closure and will help with the pain and suffering that you have endured since that night. There is no easy solution for either family. Accountability and healing is all that is left.
