I think we may here be seeing English changing.  I would guess that
British people, my father included, thought "rubbernecking" an
interesting term and extended the meaning.


David,

I might add that my father is also "british" and I've never heard anyone
native of Canada (other than anglophile media people) say "rubbernecking"
unless they, like me, had British parents.
