So what other factors are at work, that seemingly make US roads more dangerous than UK roads?

Traffic regulations?
Driving ability?
Culural differences?
Safety features on cars?
Other?
Combination?
Obviously you'd have to study the problem in more detail. But one big difference off the top of my head is the UK doesn't have nearly the elaborate freeway system the US has and I'd imagine speed coupled with how our freeways are constructed [some having 10 lanes in each direction] contributes to that.
