I dare you to come up with an explanation for this

Add the following study to the long list of ones I don’t believe. The article claims that astrological signs are better predictors of accidents than age or postal code.

We’ve reported on bizarre patterns in outcomes related to month of birth before (like overrepresentation of certain birth months in the NHL or World Cup), but those patterns were readily related to cutoff dates for age eligibility. This one, on the other hand, makes no sense to me.

I dare a blog reader to come up with a reasonable explanation other than errors in the study. Note that the claim is not that accident rates are higher only just after you get your license, these are rates for people of all ages.
