person known to the court as "p.k." <[email protected]> made
a statement (<[email protected]> in

All of which semantic nicety side-steps the issue, which is that by
calling them accidents, when they are in fact the predictable and
occasionally inevitable results of negligence, aggression or
incompetence, obscures the problem and offers a ready smokescreen to
those who seek not to have that problem addressed.

Which is why the DfT have renamed Road Accidents Great Britain to Road
Casualties Great Britain, among other things.

Shouldn't that be Motor Vehicle Driver Casualties Great Britain - it
seem wrong to blame the road ;-)
