KY - Tropical cyclones

That makes my eyebrows go up.

Hurricanes, the rest of the world calls them cyclones.

Yeeeah.

Although we don't get a lot of them here in KY, I know what they are.

A hurricane, cyclone, and typhoon are all the same thing except for where they make landfall. Pacific Northwest and Atlantic are hurricanes, Eastern Pacific is a cyclone, and Southeast Pacific and Australia are typhoons. But it isn't a regional language thing; the NOAA officially classifies storms in these three terms, while the equivalent folks in other countries call them something different. It makes no sense.

Whoopee, were all gonna die...

The pdf has correlations of seatbelt usage and alcohol.

When a passenger car and an LTV hit head-on, an occupant was between 3.1 to 4.1 times more frequently to be killed in a passenger car than in an LTV.

When a passenger car front hit the side of an LTV, an occupant was between 1.3 to 1.7 times more frequently to be killed in an LTV than in a passenger car.

However, when an LTV front hit the side of a passenger car, an occupant was between 13.3 to 22.7 times more frequently to be killed in a passenger car than in an LTV.

Never heard of an LTV.

That's an NHTSA term, LTV (SUV, pickup truck, or van).

So is the LTV the problem or is the passenger car the problem?

Depends on which one you're driving/riding in, if you're in a passenger car there's a bigger chance you'll be dead and have no problems.

Only 12 fatalities in a year in DC? Wow.


I guess it makes sense; no highways and few straightaways so speeds are lower, so accidents are less likely to be fatal. Plus lower population overall, except for Vermont and Wyoming.

Texas (or at least Austin) has been doing this thing for a few years now where they keep a running total on the big Amber Alert signs when there's no Amber Alert going on. "1,257 people have died on Texas roads this year," and then the next day it will be 1,264...

What do they call those ICC bumpers that (are supposed to) keep cars from going that far under the rear of the trailer?

Anti something bars?
