    Reduce the number of cars per 1,000 capita from the 800 in the US to about the 500 in Europe.

    The best answer has it right, but it should be about reducing the number of DRIVERS, not the number of cars. Cars don't kill people; the people driving those cars kills people. Get the bad drivers off the road, and keep them off. Issue drivers' licenses ONLY to people who demonstrate excellent driving skills, not to anybody who can stay in their lane and pass a written "driving trivia" quiz.

    Pedestrians that are hit by cars are either stupid, drunk, high on drugs, or distracted. If they LIVE, they may be more cautious next time. If they don't survive, it's a little less welfare money being handed out.
