Re: Lesser of two evils?

"Flying is a piece of piss compared with driving. Nothing happens quickly, 1/2 km is considered a near miss so there is nothing to hit except the ground and it is pretty obvious where that is."

Quite a few accidents begin away from obstacles, and then "progress to the scene of the crash." I take your point, though, that driving in traffic has far less margin for error. A stranger in the next lane can lose attention for half a second and send 2 tons of Range Rover through your side door without warning.
