Interesting statistic.

Bogata's population is 6.673 million, about 12.6 times the population in Hamilton. 280 deaths falling to 180 would correspond to 22 (54 per year) deaths falling to 14 (35 per year).

Hamilton had an average of 20 +/- 5 traffic deaths per year (from 1991 to 2010), with a high of 31 in 1997.

Bogata's traffic death rate is still higher than Hamilton's, but not by much, and they've achieved big decreases. Maybe we could learn something from them after all. Especially since vulnerable users, pedestrians and cyclists, make up a much larger proportion of traffic in Bogata than in Hamilton.
