was produced by the Winton programme for the public understanding of risk based in the Statistical Laboratory in the University of Cambridge. The aim was to help improve the way that uncertainty and risk are discussed in society, and show how probability and statistics can be both useful and entertaining.

Last summer we were on a walking holiday and were walking from our campsite behind Deal/Walmer in Kent towards the coastal path. We crossed over a fairly busy road and then down a residential street with cars parked on the roadway and on driveways. As we were passing one house a gentleman was trying to reverse onto the road and as he was having difficulty seeing because of the parked cars my husband stood in the road and beckoned him out for which he was most grateful. We continued on our walk and later on in the afternoon (about 5/6 hours later) we walked back up the same street to find the same gentleman attempting to back out of his drive so - again - my husband helped him out.
