Automotive Memorial Day

The NHTSA, which soft-peddles the phenomenon, estimates that, in 2017, 37,150 people died in U.S. car crashes. 8,210 of these people were children — individuals aged 1-24, whose brains were still maturing.

For those counting, that is a 9/11’s worth of artificial death every single month.

Somehow, it doesn’t count or even get mentioned, though, does it?
