Seven fatal car accidents in about one month and some change is a lot. And the fact that it's more than at the same time last year, really begs a few questions that seriously need to be answered. Don't forget to let us know your answers or thoughts in the POLL at the end.

Why are there so many fatal car accidents? Are El Pasoans just bad drivers? Are we just unlucky drivers? Is it just a subsection of street racers who like watching too many "The Fast And The Furious" movies?

In all seriousness, it's important to remind everyone that El Paso is one of the safest cities in the country. But, that only applies to violent crimes, and when it comes to things like fatal car accidents, El Paso isn't doing so hot.
