Governments legislate automobile safety standards, mandate local driving laws such as speed limits, and most importantly build the roads, cross walks, lights etc. In Washington, if there is an intersection that becomes known for pedestrian issues it definitely becomes a local government issue to fix.

Can't find it to link, on limited devices, sorry.

    Here's a link to the question: politics.stackexchange.com/q/46830/101 - It's a request for statistics, not a question specifically about governments, policies and political processes. – yannis Oct 20 at 7:59

    Please be specific. If you found a question about unemployment rate that was nothing more than a request for statistics yet it was treated differently than yours, please point it out. – yannis Oct 20 at 10:52

    @yannis like this one: politics.stackexchange.com/questions/1579/… or this one politics.stackexchange.com/questions/9015/… or a half dozen more. – K Dog Oct 23 at 16:33

    Not sure how those are comparable to your question. Your question is a request for statistics, with no other substance whatsoever. That is not the case with either example. – yannis Oct 23 at 17:43
