Thirteen auto fatalities in a 13-year period related to a faulty ignition switch certainly are tragic. Congress is holding hearings and speaking of criminal charges against the automobile manufacturer. During a recent 13-year period (1999-2011), 187,605 automobile crash fatalities related to alcohol consumption were reported. That is 14,431 per year (alcoholalert.com/drunk-driving-statistics.html).
