    and that's why they're called the Flyover States

    Most states have a craft brewery named after something associated with the state, or some random name that would fit most anywhere. Except Nevada - "Ellis Island" for a state way far from the famous Ellis Island, and inland to boot. WTF???

    Interesting that the two "safest" counties are Nantucket - an island with relatively few cars, few roads, and no where to go except get on/off the ferry and Arlington, VA, so much traffic, no time to get to lethal speed.

    Actually, This is a PER CAPITA rate, not an absolute rate.

    That is why Kenedy county, TX, population 416 (2010 census) with 43 traffic deaths in 20 years has a "more dangerous" rating than many counties with that many deaths in a year. That is why some of the most populous counties are listed as "safest" - big denominator of population to divide the death numbers.
    Nice find, bad caption

    Nantucket's bridges can be tricky, however.

    true; but i meant for the helpful map on their webzone, "Exxonmobile Perspectives"

    The map is from American Petroleum Institute. Exxon's point is they make less on a gallon of gas than the federal and state governments do. This was news to me. I'd be pretty chapped if governments made 10x more money off my product than I did.
    Also, be sure to fill up before entering NC.

    I'll be sure to shed a tear for Big Oil tonight before I go to bed.

    The government isn't making money. They're building roads and bridges... Theoretically.
