Definitions Order
Issue:  Currently, definitions are grouped by their category ("Transport Vehicles and Transport Ways, etc.) rather than in alphabetical order. This creates a more difficult user experience, because a person is required to "flip" back and forth between the index and chapters to find what they are looking for.

Proposed Solution:  To enhance the user experience, I propose we reorganize the Definitions chapter to list all definitions by alphabetical order first including a category notation (existing organization), than include a table at the end (chapter) that breaks the terms down by existing categories (Accidents, Location, Road Vehicle Accident Types, etc.)...or some combination of these methods.

Large Numbers
For user experience, anytime there are numbers greater than 100, use a comma (e.g. in 3.11.2.2 “curb weight 1400 pounds” and all similar instances should read as curb weight 1,400 pounds).

I wish there was a way to "like" or otherwise endorse someone else's comment (perhaps there is something I'm overlooking, distracted by the available emoticons). I can certainly attest to having wished that D16 terminology was organized differently, and a simple alphabetical listing would be one way to improve the structure.

The equivalent to liking a post would be to thank the poster by clicking the Thanks link in the upper right-hand corner of the post.

Tables of contents are intended to serve as on outline of the subject matter and content of a publication. It is appropriate that they be structured this way. Indexes are alphabetical listings of topics, usually at the end of the publication. A user should be able to scan the table of contents and have a general understanding of the organization and content of the publication. This is commonly accepted practice, and folks who have spent time at the library pouring over TOCs to try and determine which books meet their research needs can attest to its value. Changing the TOC to an alphabetical listing simply makes it an index at the beginning of the book, and takes away this important function of the TOC.

I hit "Thanks" and all posts were 'thanked'- ?
Q> Can I thank individual posts?
Q> How can I Un-Thank fhe post I disagree with?
