    A number of minor automobile accidents occur at various high-risk intersections in Teton County despite traffic lights. The Traffic Department claims that a modification in the type of light will reduce these accidents. The county commissioners have agreed to a proposed experiment. Eight intersections were chosen at random, and the lights at those intersections were modified. The numbers of minor accidents during a six-month period before and after the modifications were:

    Number of Accidents A B C D E F G H
    Before modification 5 7 6 4 8 9 8 10
    After modification 3 7 7 0 4 6 8 2

    At the .01 significance level is it reasonable to conclude that the modification reduced the number of traffic accidents?
