Default cause of recent crashes

I have been seeing a lot of car crashes lately and I am wondering if there is a connection between louvered hoods and non louvered hoods? I have noticed there less stopping distance in louvered hooded cars because if the way they go down the road and the drag coefficient is increased due to the louvers. Now my concern is my vette has louvers on the side to cool the brakes, so should I be concerned?

Never had the louver prob though and never crashed .

The parachute helps on the breaking , and no traction problems either

I personally don't think its a louver problem...I think it may have something to do with those stupid "snake eyes" lights on hoods distracting people. Or perhaps the rash of obnoxious (and, frankly, noxious) rear wings cars seem to be sprouting these days.

"Gee...is your car both fast AND furious?"
