It seems to me that a lot of the victims around my part of the world are not innocent victims but quite often users of alcohol and drug. Disqualified drivers and/or registration and stolen cars comes up regularly too. Distracted drivers are a rapidly rising number in the statistics too. I do not see these victims as purely blameless. Their passengers (especially children with no option) and the people they plough into are the victims.
My standard 1 year old Toyota has a data recorder buried within it somewhere. It is a small statement within the handbook and states that Toyota and the relavant authorities can access it if required. I'd also like to see manufacturers make crash cams as standard fit out as most cars have a fair percentage of the equipment already onboard.
Part of the road statistics is not the deaths, it's also the vast number of injuries.
