Bullseyed: DROxINxTHExWIND: People drive slower in a winter storm./Where's my grant?Slow driving causes more accidents than fast driving does. Speeding (driving fast) does not correlate to accidents.
Syrrh: Slow driving is not going to cause more accidents. That's preposterous. Slow means better able to stop in time.Slow driving may cause sphincter-challenged impatient farksticks to swerve and pass irrationally, and be too busy glaring at the granny to pay attention where the rest of their car is going. THAT is gonna cause more accidents, sure. But that's the fault of the jackass flying into a tizzy at going slightly slower than the exact right number he wants.
