Kpaul is right. He said 12% was "highly unlikely" and would be "front page news." As you yourself pointed out, the increase was only about 11%, which is miniscule and barely worth mentioning compared to the almost inconceivably humongous 12%.



It's 72% Comparative Statistics 101 and 28% Introduction to Logic. Seruzawa, you owe kpaul an apology.

I don't recall, but you're probably correct.

Whoops, I mean Longride. But Seruzawa should apologise, too, just because.

Default Re: Florida HP To Crackdown On Riders Who Evade. Larger License Plates considered

I would agree its lame in most states,but in Fla. where hundreds of thousands congregate for 9 days twice a year,its probably pertinent.

I believe Fl. tags are currently smaller than many other states.

I agree and hopefully the new study AMA is attempting to raise money for will address lots of these issues;but this article is a fluff piece which doesnt give enough hard facts to backm any conclusions.

Geez, kpaul, get a hobby besides "multiply-moderate the sh*t out of my posts and posts that I like." Kinda ruins the whole point of moderating, y'know. Show some self-discipline for a change of pace.

Fatalities are up, but not near as much of an increase in accidents. Sounds like we're having safer crashes, based on the two paragraph article I read. Makes you wonder if the press EVER knows what it's talking about, doesn't it.

That jives with the article which sez they're 6x3 - a bit smaller than the ~7x4 of a MO, AR, KS, OK, IL, and TN tag. Other States may be the same size.
