No Accident: Rethinking Motor Vehicle Violence
Aaron Naparstek
Streetsblog.org founder and MIT DUSP Visiting Scholar

If you ever want to kill someone New York or just about any other American city, use a car as your weapon. As long as you are sober, licensed and do not flee the scene of what will inevitably be called an "accident," it is virtually guaranteed that you will get away with murder. Around the world, 1.3 million people die in road traffic crashes and 20 to 50 million more are injured each year. This is a massive global health crisis that, for the most part, we ignore. Join DUSP Visiting Scholar Aaron Naparstek, founder of http://streetsblog.org, for a discussion on emerging, new perspectives on motor vehicle violence and the critical role that urban planners and designers can play in solving the problem.
