only stricter traffic laws can prevent accidents
though the possibility of living a long and happy life is greater than ever before, every day we cites the incredible slaughter of men, women and children on the roads. man versus the motor-car! it is a never-ending battle which man is losing. thousands of people the world over are killed or horribly mutilated each year and we are quietly sitting back and letting it happen.
it has been rightly said that when a man is sitting behind a steering wheel, his car becomes the extension of his personality. there is no doubt that the motor-car often brings out a man`s very worst qualities. people who are normally quiet and pleasant may become unrecognizable when they are behind a steering-wheel. they are ill-mannered and aggressive, willful as two-year olds and utterly selfish.
the surprising thing is that society smiles so benignly on the motorist and seems to condone his behavior. everything is done for his convenience. cities are allowed to become almost uninhabitable because of heavy traffic; the countryside is desecrated by road networks; and the mass annual slaughter becomes nothing more than a statistic, to be conveniently forgotten.
it is high time a world code were created to reduce this senseless waste of human life. with regard to driving, laws of some countries are notoriously lax and even the strictest are not strict enough. a code which was universally accepted could only have dramatically beneficial effect on the accident rate.
