Studies show only 1% of SA is caused by driver error

Excerpt from Castelli et al, The Myth of Driver Error, (PDF) page 13

If we pretend to accept Toyota's claims of 30% of SA caused by mat and sticky pedal, and then follow this 1% caused by driver error (i.e. pedal misapplication), we have 69% left that remains unexplained.

So what is the cause?

Joel, can you explain away this 69%?
