Answer: Running someone over with a vehicle

Image

Think about it: can you think of any other way of killing someone that requires so little effort and so little thought. Running over someone doesn’t require an evil conscience. It doesn’t even require thought or attention. (In fact, the lack of those things is usually the cause)

I think in our car-crazed culture we forget that we are driving 4000 pound projectiles at high velocities. If used improperly they can in an instant end peoples’ lives. In 2010, over 2000 Canadians died in vehicle collisions.

When one gets behind a vehicle, everybody is entrusting their lives in them. Driving is a huge responsibility to everyone, something I believe gets lost because it has managed to become so ingrained in our lives.

For me, it’s another reason for moving away from car culture.
