Ask Heisenberg ;-)
OK, enough of the humor (for the moment). There was a study conducted
by Harvard way back in the early '60's, studying *every* accident in
Massachusetts that year. Their conclusion: the *majority* of
accidents were due to some kind of mechanical anomaly, bad tires, bad
I'll see if I can find that report in my archives.
On my own observations, particularly after being T-boned on November
16, I'd say inattention/hurrying/Christmas-shopping was the major
cause. So just get rid of Christmas and the problem will go away ;-)
