VERY interesting. I'm surprised about Wyoming, Montana, and New Mexico. You would think that vehicles are so spread out that it would be much harder for them to collide. Do they all have higher speed limits? Single vehicle accidents?

Is this rank ordered? I don't understand these numbers for some reason...
Rank ordered by death rate per 100,000 population. Highest to lowest.

the only reason florida is as low as it is, is because it is deaths per population, so the states with less people rank higher, because they end up with a higher percentage of deaths per population, florida has some of the most deaths, following new york, and cali.

Well, it's not all that fair of a comparison. Wyoming is the least populated state, so any number of deaths represent a chunk of the population there.
The stats are interesting, but I think CO and MA are only so low because of the population density. The people just CANNOT freaking drive in either of those states. People in NH make fun of MA drivers daily (Massholes) and I'm sure folks surrounding CO loathe to see a CO plate on a car.
Different problems, but bad drivers all around. In CO, it's that funny triangle sign with YIELD painted on it that stumps them. People come whipping out off the ramp with not even a glance over their shoulders. We also have Yield signs at T intersections, But Stop signs in the middle of nowhere. The rearview mirror itself seems to be lost on CO drivers. They also like to dive into any opening at a stop light. So many car get rear ended here because they do that in front of a semi which then just lost 15 feet of stopping distance- blam! We also kill pedestrians with alarming frequency here.
In MA, it was whipping across 4 lanes of traffic to make an off ramp you knew you needed to exit on for the past 5 miles. Alot of bikers have been taken out this way in NH and MA. I think they're taught to exit at the last possible second in driver's ed there. In MA, traffic is more like bumper cars than anything else.
