Ten People Died in CA Traffic Collisions on Christmas

This is tragic. I am sorry for the losses the families are dealing with. However, if the math was done, I think we would find that 10 deaths relative to how many millions of people were on the road during that same time, would make a relatively small percentage. I could be wrong, but I bet more people died during the same time from medical mistakes or prescription drugs.
