There are two main causes of accidents These are examples of one cause. Paying too much attention to the rear view.

I'm applying for a government grant to study this problem further. Wish me luck.

And cause number 2, paying too much attention too whats going on up front.  So remember guys,  be careful out there.

Thanks for the offers of assistance with the research gentlemen but please be aware that any research can only be regarded as valid if accompanied by photographic evidence.
