You've Heard About Death And Taxes, But What About Taxes And Death?

See Fatal car wrecks jump on tax day by Aaron Smith of CNN. Excerpts:
"The odds of getting into a fatal crash increase by 6% on tax filing day, according to a study published Wednesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association."

""One explanation is that stressful deadlines lead to driver distraction and worsen short-term human error," Dr. Redelmeier told CNNMoney. He said that sleep deprivation, greater use of alcohol, lower tolerance for other drivers, and the "unwanted distraction" of filing taxes could all contribute to a jump in accidents."
