Could Matthew Cordle and his video have actually saved lots of lives in Ohio?

The question in the title of this post was my class-specific reaction to this report in today's Columbus Dispatch headlined "Ohio traffic deaths could hit record low." The article begins this way:

With some luck, Ohio could dip below 1,000 traffic fatalities this year for the first time since the state began keeping records.  The State Highway Patrol says there were 823 traffic deaths through Monday, the lowest number since 2011, when the year-end toll was 1,016.

I have no reason whatsoever to doubt the truth of these statistics. But after watching The Wire, its hard for me to believe that law enforcement figures are calculated using only math.

Link is NSFW (Language).

I believe Professor Berman may be psychic (or probably just really really smart). A couple of classes ago he mentioned how if we want to keep children safe on Halloween we should be less worried about sex offenders turning out their lights and instead should lower the speed limits.

This just happened in my hometown last night during trick or treat.
