    I’ve expressed this before, but I think using a pun (“carnage”) to link to stories in which people have died in accident involving cars is in (a) in poor taste and (b) normalizes such stories. I think you’d be better off just reporting it straight.

    Thanks for your comment. If a lot of folks feel this way, maybe we can come up with another term. I use “carnage” as the term that Streetsblog NYC has used for many years in their weekly round-up of car-caused fatalities, injuries, etc. Perhaps you’ve already done this, but let them know too.
