    that afflicts our society.

    Take away the car, and you still have:

    violence is the symptom of the dis ease in our society.

    There is more to medicine than merely treating symptoms without addressing the root causes of the symptom.

    We have spent decades working on improving car safety .
    We have lowered the number of killed and wounded per passenger seat mile traveled .
    The latest safety improvement that I have seen is the Volvo external airbags . They have airbags on the outside of the car for pedestrians .

    There were people who were against improving cars for safety .
    They made the argument that there was nothing wrong with cars when they were used properly , that only people who misused cars were the problem , that the fault was the foolish operator .
