    AD-

    This series isn’t the most commented but I want to provide a little encouragement for want must be a time-consuming effort.

    As it stands, driving a car is accepted as the norm- I would argue even in New York- and other aspects of our lives are often determined by the desire to make driving an easier experience. This series has done a lot to illustrate the costs of this choice we have made as a society.

    Unfortunately there we aren’t adequately able to pay an appropriate amount of respect to these individuals who have lost their lives but this series guarantees some recognition at the very least.
