“Here’s a Shock: Traffic Deaths Close to Zero in Copenhagen (Politiken.dk)”
About same density as OC, 2009 155 deaths in OC (http://www.californiainjurylawyersblog.com/2010/05/state-reports-approximately-155-orange-county-california-traffic-deaths-in-2009.html)
Compared to 5 in CPH 2009(http://politiken.dk/newsinenglish/article965600.ece)
I agree CPH is a bit smaller, but even at double, 10 deaths, or even at 20, it’s magnitude difference.
In general people here are so safety conscious, no smoking, hardly drink(compared to Denmark), but on this actual matter seems like there is very little attention, why does US and SoCal in particular tolerate this carnage?
Hah, funny – I sent that Copenhagen article to Bryan Goebel at SF Streetsblog. He didn’t post it there, but didn’t expect to see it here. Must’ve been a coincidence unless you somehow got it from him. Anyway, I only saw it because I’m currently studying in Denmark and read the news.
I got it from Erik Griswold…but I’ll give Bryan a poke on getting “scooped” from down here.

“Shouldn't the goal of any revitalization of the LA River be to make it easily accessible without a car? Does it help if there are just more surface lots built, or neighborhoods get filled with visitors?”
