Tim, I would question the first item as being out by a factor of 100
If you assume the US population at roughly 300 million, 1 in 100 road deaths would equate to 3 million fatalities per year.

This is how you can tell time..

A sundial is a device that tells the time of day by the apparent position of the Sun in the sky. In the narrowest sense of the word it consists of a flat plate (the dial) and a gnomon which casts a shadow onto the dial. As the sun appears to move across the sky, the shadow aligns with different hour-lines which are marked on the dial to indicate the time of day.
Is there a different sundial for daylight savings time?

Do they make an sundial for overcast days?

Does rain wash away the shadow?

If there is a shadow will there be 6 more weeks of BS?

# 1, 2 & 3, No, I think you could patent one of your inventions & get rich !

As far as the BS, there is NOTHING that can stop that!

Here's something interesting, a wireless VAD! Where I slave every day, we do things that provide tools for all different fields so there's a bunch of folks that monitor all these different domains. Saw this just today on our internal website.

Notice at the bottom one of the sources was from England. They probably was talking metric numbers!

U.S. vehicle deaths topped 40,000 in 2017, National Safety Council estimates. U.S. vehicle deaths barely declined in 2017 but remained notably higher than in 2015, according to a new report. The National Safety Council estimated automotive fatalities topped 40,000 for the second consecutive year.Feb 15, 2018

I think Tim's stats include squirrels, rabbits, armadillos and possums.

Yes, and at the same time, with a population one sixth the size of the US, the UK annual road death rate is less than 1,800. (4,5% of the US total). Maybe it's due to UK drivers using the correct side of the road.
