The Root Of Road Accidents
One interesting thing I'd not heard before:
There had been a steady rise in total fatalities from 1926 (the earliest I have figures for) to 1930, and then the trend reversed and there was a steady fall to the end of the 40's if you ignore the blackout years.
Apparently they scrapped the general 20mph limit in 1930!
