In the UK, nearly 300,000 people died on our roads between 1951 and 2003 and 16 million were injured. Last year over 3,000 died and over a 100,000 were injured.
Last year, in the UK, 52 people died from muslim terrorism.
As today's female commentator in the Independent (sorry I forget her name and the Independent website charges so I can't be bothered to link), points out, lets save lives by curtailing the freedom of motorists before we affect anyone else.
Terrorism is exagerated. It makes good copy but it's importance is minimal especially in comparision to the lives lost through inequality and our destruction of the environment and quality of life with cars etc.
Also (with the honourable exception of radio 4 and maybe newsnight and channel 4 news) you could cover all the facts and insight of all the many dozens of hours coverage by the major news channels on this story into about 15 minutes of facts. Does anyone else find this repetitive mind numbing uninformative coverage really boring?
