Some news reports around the D.C area suggest that the D.C beltway - 85% or 
more speed.  Yet only 65% of the accidents have 'speed' as a contributing 
factor.  Now if I were one to twist statistics - that would mean the 15% of the 
drivers that don't speed cause or are involved in 35% of the accidents.  

We got get those "conformest" off road.
