For all you rubberneckers. Now that there is a site for it do you think you can resist the urge to slow down and take a peek at every car wreck you pass?

well, call me a girl-next-door type it you want, but where are the neons, the kias, the cavaliers? those fancy wrecks just don't do anything for me.

And it's not wrecked cars most rubberneckers want to see ... it's the misery and suffering of the human occupants that most people slow down to watch.

Yeah. Who cares about the cars? It's the blood and guts that's of interest.

I want to rubberneck at the bloodied bodies of pop-up pushers.

Yeah, because as soon as porn was on the Internet, people stopped looking at naked people in real life. :)

For the blood and guts, I always recommend Signal 30 (scroll down).

Cf. The 1997 This American Life episode, Other People's Mail -- notes, letters, and lists found in crumpled cars (direct RealAudio link -- minutes 5 to 15, approximately).

Yah, it's just not the same without the emergency vehicles and mysterious pavement stains.

I just saw a Wells Fargo type truck on it's side on I95. The cops, not too surprisingly, were all over that crash scene.
