Toyota Accelerator Data Skewed Toward Elderly

An anonymous reader passes along this discussion on the data for the Toyota accelerator problem, from a few weeks back. (Here’s a Google spreadsheet of the data.) “Several things are striking. First, the age distribution really is extremely skewed. The overwhelming majority are over 55. Here’s what else you notice: a slight majority of the incidents involved someone either parking, pulling out of a parking space, in stop and go traffic, at a light or stop sign… in other words, probably starting up from a complete stop.”
