    Is Skydiving Safer Than Driving?

    Is skydiving safer than driving? The answer is surprising: statistically speaking, yes, skydiving is safer than driving. As you get behind the wheel for your daily commute, you may not even bat an eye, but did you know it's far more "dangerous" than jumping out of a "perfectly good airplane." It's true. Because of the routine created by our daily commute, the trips we take to the grocery store, or drives to and fro for coffees, lunch dates, and evening meetups, the risk of driving is buried in tedium. Nevermind, the majority of time spent on the road is time spent dangerously distracted. Now, if you mention skydiving, nine out of ten will see making the leap as considerably more threatening than an easy Sunday drive.
