Gislaved is the hometown of the company founders.

Thanks for the info on Gislaveds! We have them on both the family Jetta wagon and my daughter's Corolla, and they work a treat.

The big 3 spent $25 Billion on advertising.

The key word here is "confirms" because this is not news to anyone who studies the numbers.

Ontario's own stats show every similar percentages.

Another interesting number I heard the other day. Haven't independently confirmed it yet, but according to a usually reliable source, in 2004, the last year apparently for which data is available, the TOTAL number of deaths on Ontario highways attributed to OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino's beloved 50-over the speed limit?

Go on, take a guess...

The number?

Zero.

That's ZEE-ROW.

As in, NONE. Nada. Nil. Zilch.

Pretty hard to come up with a percentage improvement on that statistic.
