Not true. Seat belts, air bags, stronger frames, anti-lock brakes, etc. But there is no reliable technology that will prevent a drunken fool from getting in a car and ramming it into another one.

Nonsense the rate of automobile deaths (deaths per X million miles driven) has fallen steadily since the 1920s or so. If fatalities had increased at the same rate as miles driven between 1994 and 2009, for instance, there would have been 45601 people killed in 09 compared to the actual total of 33,308 (which was also less than in 1994). The rate, or fatalities per 100 million miles driven, fell from 1.73 to 1.13 over that time period. I don't know why Americans have aversion to figuring out risk data and using it properly (I also see a LOT of health care stuff where the media gets all upset about a study that shows a doubling of relative risk and sorta ignores the fact that a doubling of relative risks means two people in a million will get the disease instead of 1 in a million).

It is harder for idiots to kill themselves via car crashes these days, but it certainly flies in the face of nature's rule of survival of the fittest unless you apply it to cars, as in the cars that kill the fewest occupants probably sell better.

Whatever the reason, it's a principle that marketing people rely on to sell all sorts of preventative measures, products and medications.

I heard it from the news (as shown in the cites prior).

Basically, it's all single-family homes. Old or new. There are extremely few single-family homes that don't have gas appliances or an attached garage, or a fireplace.

IIRC, it's (currently) a $200 fix-it fine; but as in all things government, that will go up sharply when they realize how much money they can make (especially during the yearly scheduled California budget crisis) simply by inspecting homes and levying the fines.
