4% of RTCs - "most common"??? But this is an old document, it can only get worse as people live longer.
"The vast majority of UA crashes involved older drivers of automatic cars
accelerating suddenly, either forward or reversing, and usually while carrying out
low-speed manoeuvring such as parking and reversing."
Wonder if the numbers will increase as elctric vehicles become more common . . . ?
