A slight change of format this week as Streetsblog adds a completely unscientific tally of the metropolitan area's weekly motor vehicle death count, and divides crash coverage between fatal crashes, crashes that cause injuries and those that result merely in property damage. (I expect most coverage to relate to fatal crashes as the nonfatal ones, while more numerous, will less frequently be deemed newsworthy.) As always, your comments are welcome. For the reasons we publish this column, see About the Weekly Carnage.
