It seems like they wouldn't have needed a full blown study for those results Seems pretty common sense to me.

Practice, pay attention, but sometimes things happen that were out of your control.

As Jeremy Clarkson says, "It's not speed that kills. It's suddenly becoming stationary. That's what gets you."

Slide #3: "Slow speed tip overs account for over half of the recorded crashes."

Slide #5: "55% of the recorded single-vehicle mishaps happened in curves."

So which fact is correct? Figures lie and liars figure is an expression that comes to mind. I learned nothing from that MSF report: just another useless study that speaks the obvious. But thanks for the link!

That's like the adage that the first 80% of any plan is the hardest while the last 80% is even harder.
