You don't have to be a scoffing christian or overly skeptical to believe this is beyond stupid. I'd be willing to bet there is other factors besides "negative earth energy" affecting parts of road with more thatn thier share of accidents. Things such as bad engineering or poor planning.

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 christian or a skeptic".
