Sitting Targets in the Car

Just one reason I love our government is we pay them taxes so they can conduct studies that tell us crucial and otherwise impossible to know information like, "When drivers took long glances away from the road at the wrong moment, they were twice as likely to get into a crash."

What's most important, though, is that the AP senses what's truly newsworthy and covers the story like a tailgating speeder on the highway of knowledge grill-to-bumper with the brainaics at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute.

At least the writer had a sense to include this choice nugget:

John Simpson of Christiansburg, Va., said his "personal favorite" is once seeing a woman in traffic "with her knees up on the steering wheel, sheet music in her lap and she was playing the flute."

After all, there's nothing like a flute being played in a car, right gentlemen?
