Another Dispatch from the Incredibly Obvious

Don't walk on the road, in the dark.
A new study in the journal Leukos, "Moon Phases and Nighttime Road Crashes Involving Pedestrians," by researchers at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) found that more pedestrians are killed in traffic on nights with a new moon—when the moon is not illuminated—than during a full moon.



Please tell me this study was done on somebody else's dime.
