Slipping and sliding toward winter driving
I'm taking a look at state traffic data, specifically at accidents in the past four years when it's either snowing or sleeting.
Care to guess (for 2007-2010):
A. How many accidents in snow or sleet have there been in Champaign County?
B. What day of the week had the most accidents in snow or sleet?
C. What day of the week had the fewest accidents in snow or sleet?
D. What direction was the driver most often going?
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.
