  1. GCV generalized cross validation, RSS residual sum-of-squares (RSS) of the model, and Rsq R-squared of the model. For more information see Milborrow (2015). Model: dependent variable ~ natural light condition (day, darkness, twilight) + distance to the nearest intersection + road width + posted speed limit + road surface temperature + year + month + presence of road lighting or not + amount of precipitation + weather condition (clear, rain, snow) when applicable.
