Even with very low enforcement, India has stats slightly lower than China and also comparatively lower to many countries with far higher enforcement. Which made me happy, till I realize we probably have potholes to thank for this - hard to have traffic fatalities when everyone is inching along slowly on bad roads in high traffic!
I'm guessing they are trying to show correlation before traffic enforcement and deaths per capita - wish there was also a version that showed obedience of road rules & deaths per capita, i.e. when traffic stays in its own lane and doesn't cut signals, does that significantly reduce the fatality rate? I know, its a more subjective area so there can't be any good statistics for it - but imho just staying in lane properly would greatly reduce the 'speed' related deaths atleast, and maybe for some other categories too.
