Bad engineering doesn't answer the fact that "One blackspot's fatal accident rate fell from an average of six per year to nothing after the druid treatment" - or do people like you just look at the statement "Druids hired to cut road accidents" and base your decision on the fact that you are a "scoffing christi...
