Just think about how great 2009 would have been if Toyota hadn't been sending out all those death traps.

It could be argued that the the reason it was so low, was due to high unemployment rate, high gas prices, and poor economy keeping drivers off the road.  Fewer trips to the mall, fewer trips to see Grandma, less commuting to work, etc.  I know that was certainly the case in our extended family, so I suspect it was true in others as well.
