Shocking study by the Wall Street Journal on the perils posed by older drivers:

In Japan, drivers 65 and older accounted for about a quarter of traffic deaths in 2014, compared with about 15% in the U.S.

Random, totally unrelated facts:

Population ages 65 and above (% of total)

Country name 2011 2012 2013 2014
Japan 24 24 25 26
United States 13 14 14 14

Thank God for the Wall Street Journal's hard work and shocking discovery that could save thousands of lives: seniors get into exactly as many accidents as everybody else.
