jpoc: Viewed on a per trip basis, commercial aircraft have many times more fatal accidents than cars.

The safest year on record for commercial aviation was 2012 with one fatal accident per 2.5 million flights. Auckland gets approx two fatal accidents per week from tens of millions of car trips.



Modify the car figures to make distance and times comparable with aircraft flights and the figures change.

KiwiNZ:
Sideface: The famous quote from a female passenger who had just landed in Wellington on a particularly windy day: "Next time I'll wear a sports bra."

One day out there I went the full length of the then upstairs car park without one needing to propel the wheelchair myself. I went from the crossing at the beginning to the mobility parks at the northern end It was cool.
