Car accidents are the cost of doing business for a society that can’t live without its automobiles. Ever since some not so subtle prodding back in the ’60s (Thanks Mr. Nader!), automakers have continued to improve the car’s ability to not only protect us when accidents do occur, but also avoid them in the first place. Nevertheless, one-third of all accidental deaths in the U.S. per year still involve cars. In fact, someone in this country dies in a car accident every 15 minutes. Sobering stats for sure, more of which can be found after the jump in our latest infographic.
