The president of the Seattle King county Washington safety Council Claude Browne says that 85 per cent of All traffic Accident.

A a i then there Are the careless pedestrians a 9,800 killed last year on the roads by getting in the Way of automobiles. Some of them were personally blameless of that is any Consolation. However Many pedestrians according to National safety Council vice president John d. Lawlor a just Don t Stop look and listen As carefully As they should. Two fifths of the total of 160,000 pedestrian deaths and injuries from automobiles have a resulted from too my quarrel with or. Nader is that it is hopeless to ask the government to assume the responsibility for saving people from their propensity for error. The government can to stand watch Over every party goer to keep him from taking that last drink. It can to prevent a Jaywalker from trying to making a sudden Dart across the Road in front of a speeding car. Individuals have got to learn to take responsibility for themselves. Even the attempt to enforce Federal standards on manufacturers must run up against the fact that government bureaus and commissions invariably come to be dominated by friends of the companies that Are supposed to be regulated. Nader would do More for erring humanity if he got behind such voluntary protective groups As the a Sci a defensive driving course and Consumers research.
