    Code:
    			if (accident== "yes" || accident== "Yes"){
    
    
    				return 1;
    			}
    			else 
    				return 0;
    Why is there braces around the return in the if-side, but not braces in the else-side?

    Glad I'm not the only one who gets annoyed by dangling else statements! Personally I always use braces, even if it's a one-liner, but at the very least be consistent for both if and else case!
