How about the rest of the world?

According to the US Department of Transportation, there are about 5,800 train-car crashes each year in the United States, most of which occur at railroad crossings. These accidents cause 600 deaths and injure about 2,300. More than 50% of all deadly accidents happen at crossings with inadequate safety devices. In the day time, about 75% of car and train collisions involve the train hitting the car. At night, about 50% of the time, the car runs into the train at an inadequately marked crossing. The lesson here is to drive safe and expect the unexpected at train crossings. Train Accident Statistics Every 90 minutes there is a train collision or derailment. http://www.mcaleerlaw.com/what-we-do/train-accident-statistics

Is this actually true ? Do we historically realize over 100 train related incidents per year ?

It is just how the REPORTING of the news works, in the grand scheme of statistics: nothing has changed. It is just more compelling to try to group events, like 'we' are on to something.
