What If the Brakes in Your Car Only Worked 82% of the Time?

That is the record of Civil Orders of Protection (Restraining orders) in one Ohio county. Do court restraining orders keep the peace? | The Newark Advocate

If I could only stop at 82 percent of the stop signs or traffic lights I encounter, I might think that the brakes in my car need work. (Assuming I survived the crashes.)

So why is that considered a good percentage when restraining orders are involved?

This percentage is in line with what others have reported.

So if your brakes failed 18 percent of the time, would you bet your life on them? [hat tip Buckeye Firearms and KABA]
