Crash Course: If You Want To Get Away With Murder Buy A Car

by Woodrow Phoenix Author

When fragile human bodies have to occupy the same spaces as big, heavy, complex machines that can travel at high speeds, the outcome is inevitable. Some people will die. So why do we identify with the driver in the car rather than the person they have killed? Using the comic book format, this book dispels the notion that traffic accidents are inevitable or acceptable, insisting that drivers own their responsibility and consider the consequences of dangerous behavior. Part thought experiment, part testimonial, and part indictment of a dysfunctional transit environment that puts convenience for drivers ahead of logic, natural resources, and even ahead of human life.
