    Now explain to the us how the airline safety record isn't going to get worse and how the safety records compare....
    I think the one factor you're omitting with that scenario, Ltlabner, is the distance traveled in those trips. The average car trip is only a few miles, while the average air trip is hundreds of miles.

    Trip for trip, I'll take your word for it as described in the quote above. But mile for mile, I would suspect that air is safer.
