"Crikey - 6 at once. Given that would be a 0.01% chance using the above formulae, I could assume that might equate the percentage of people driving around with their eyes firmly shut.

"Using the 22% figure as a "probability of being un-noticed", it would provide a strong mathematical case for riding in pairs (chance of both being missed = 22% x 22% = 4.8%), threes (1%) or more (0.2% approaching 0). And I know…"

Have to say hi - every time I see your avatar it thrills me a little. Princess Mononoke is one of my favourite Ghibli movies. Actually, I love all of their movies, but the little tree sprites do delight me.
