Comment of the Day: Rural vs. Urban Divide Strikes Again

Yesterday on The Daily Weekly we noted that states that voted for Romney in the Presidential election earlier this month tend to have more traffic fatalities than states that voted for Obama. Why is this? Do Romney supporters drive recklessly? Are Obama voters overly cautious on the roadways? There are a number of theories.

Because The Daily Weekly's "Comment of the Day" feature is nothing if not equal opportunity, today's comment comes from Seattle Weekly's own Dan Person.

As Person writes:

My guess is that this comes down to a rural vs. urban divide. Get a state like Montana with barely a million people and all of them going 75 mph down the highway just to get to the grocery store, you're going to get a higher fatality rate than places where public transportation is more available. Again, pure speculation.

Considering his Montana roots, Person may have more authority than most to discuss such important topics.
