Massive Interstate Pile-Ups Are America's Worst New Hobby

Soundtrack by John Mellencamp Cougar.

Americans have already managed 19 epic highway pile-ups this year, and we’ve still got nine months to go. Hundreds of drivers in Texas, Florida, Indiana, Ohio and Michigan caused death and destruction in the first few months of 2013, with fog and snow and smoke from giant fires often blamed for the chain-reaction disasters.

To be safe, experts advise you not live in any of those states, use public transportation whenever possible, try the very un-American technique of not being right on top of the car in front of you, and also maybe don’t drive anywhere if you can’t see at all.
