If you want to kill someone, best use a car

crashed car on road

If you want to kill someone, the best way to do it is in a car because you are highly likely to get away with it. One of the reasons is that people are being killed by cars all the time. We tolerate a level of killing by cars that we don’t tolerate in any other area. If as many soldiers were killed in combat every year in UK wars, we would be up in arms. We would be outraged. Horrified. Astonished. We would demand government action. But when it comes to people being killed by cars, we just accept this as part of the ordinary course of life, and death. Well, it’s about time we stopped accepting it.

Stop Killing our Children examines how road danger damages us all, whatever our age and however we travel, and questions our collective blindness to both its cause and remedy.The 40-minute, crowdfunded film is narrated by the BBC’s John Simpson and features interviews with Chris Boardman, Dr Rachel Aldred, Dr Ian Walker, George Monbiot and the founders of the Stop de Kindermoord movement amongst others.Please help turn the tide against road danger.

    I am the first to comment here which says everything.

    As long as cars kill other people and devastate other people’s families nobody is remotely interested.

    I bet there are comments on the other page for this week’s freebie.

    The problem is that, with some notable exceptions, politicians aren’t interested. They need the votes and are frightened of upsetting a public who are unable to contemplate radical alternatives to business as usual. The same is true of the profound changes needed to combat climate change. Where are the leaders who can convince us of the need for far-reaching change?

    A few weeks ago I heard a bit of a radio item on the danger cyclists pose to pedestrians. The number of incidents is vanishingly small compared to the number of deaths and life-changing injuries caused by motor vehicles, but how often is this topic discussed? As you say, most people just accept it, at least until they are personally affected.
