Answers to winter driving quiz
I asked a couple days ago for the answers to some questions based on data from traffic accidents in Champaign County involving snow and/or ice, from 2007 through 2010.
Here are the questions again, along with the answers:

B. What day of the week had the most accidents in snow or sleet? Tuesday is the day of most accidents in snow and ice during the past four years, with 296.
C. What day of the week had the fewest accidents in snow or sleet? Fewer accidents happened on Sunday than any other day – 133 in all.
D. What direction was the driver most often going? South.
E. Passenger cars are most frequently the kind of vehicle involved in a one-car accident in snow or sleet. The next three are pickup, van/minivan and SUV. Rank those three in order, most frequent to least. Pickup, SUV, van/minivan.
