It is not ridiculous to say sneezing could be a problem. When you sneeze it takes 2-3 seconds in total and at the final moment of sneezing you automatically close your eyes. It's not how long it lasts that matters, it's exactly when it happens e.g. if the guy in front of you that you are too close to suddenly slams his brakes on.
"less than 60% of all drivers are sober" please tell me you made that up.
"alcohol related" means that one of the drivers had consumed alcohol and tested positive. In this country (UK) if a driver who has had a drink (that puts him or her over the arbitrary level that is considered to be the point that their ability to drive safely is compromised) is minding their own business driving OK and is hit by a driver who has not had a drink then the former is invariably held to be at fault. So it is fair to assume that on a proportion of the accidents where alcohol is involved it is not the actual cause of the accident.
