Happy Easter cRc members!
This puzzler is from the Wonderful World of Statistics. A graduate student worked at one of the institutions of higher learning in Our Fair City, and wrote his dissertation on the relationship between uncontrollable outside forces and automobile accidents.
He collected thousands and thousands of accident reports from the State of Massachusetts and correlated the time of the accident with other factors, like temperature, road conditions, automobile size, age of the driver, alcohol usage, speed limits, and whether the accident victim was listening to Car Talk.
After thousands of hours of data input and hours of computer grinding, he discovered an amazing statistic. He found the absolute safest time of year to drive an automobile on a public highway.
It was so safe, in fact, that not one single accident had occurred.
However, still not able to believe his own conclusions, he returned to collecting more accident reports -- this time nationwide. Nationwide, he found that there had been statistically less than 2% of the number of accidents in any other time frame.
The question is: when was the safest time of the year to drive on a public highway and why?

June 22nd: I wish to share some news about a very exciting motor vehicle event this July 22, 2014. Jimmy Canon (1965 blue Rambler and the head of the OU Engineering test facility. Home of one of the coolest field trips ever!!) was talking to me about the American Solar Challenge. 20-25 solar powered cars will be racing from Austin, TX to St. Paul, MN from July 21 to 28 and they will be doing an overnight on Tuesday July 22nd right here in Norman! He thinks it would be a grand idea to gather up as much old iron as possible, as many cool contemporary rides as can be found locally (who’s got a SmartCar or a Tesla?? Or whatever…) and then greet a collection of solar powered vehicles at the Lloyd Noble Center as they roll into town late in the afternoon. Past-present-future all in one place! Jimmy will have more information soon. If you would like to see more about the American Solar Challenge, competing since 1990, go towww.americansolarchallenge.org
