An interesting point and I would agree it does have some effect on the numbers. However, my suspicion is that the effect really is not that large. One way around this would be to look at injury accidents instead of fatal ones or simply all accidents. Data for both are much more sparse than for fatalities which always involve a detailed investigation and reporting. I concur with other points made against this argument just above as well.

Come on that is totally inappropriate and xenophobic. That is the label I used for another fellow that ended up getting that thread closed. Let's not go there on this one. We are indeed a country of immigrants and the problem is our licensing standards combined with differing standards in other countries. Again our increased freedoms require increased vigilance to be safe and not everyone is as qualified as they believe.

Last but not least perhaps you could provide some evidence and statistics about how many "immigrants" are involved in fatal crashes rather than just stating it as a foregone conclusion?

Germany doesn't allow women to drive, hence the lower accident rates
