9781411681569: It's No Accident: The Real Story Behind Senseless Death and Injury on Our Roads

For more than 30 years, the government has been ramming cars into walls in an effort to make car crashes safe. The public has been conditioned to believe that seatbelts, airbags and more "crashworthy" vehicles are the best ways to protect us from harm on the roads. Meanwhile, the most basic strategies to deter dangerous driving and prevent crashes have been ignored. "It's No Accident" provides a rare glimpse into how the government got seduced by the promise of "safe crashing." It then examines the major factors involved in crashes today, including speeding, aggressive driving, distractions (e.g. cell phones) and drowsy driving. The author reveals that many dangerous behaviors are now legally PROMOTED by businesses, and that drivers who kill often walk away with just a small fine. This well-documented expose is a must-read for anyone concerned about violent death and injury on our roads and how to stop it.

About the Author:

Lisa Lewis is founder and executive director of the national grassroots organization, the Partnership for Safe Driving.  The Partnership has been a leading voice in advocating radical change in the direction of highway safety programs in the U.S., from an emphasis on "safe crashing" to an acknowledgment of the dangerous driving (e.g. speeding, red-light running, distracted driving, drowsy driving) that pervades our road system and results in millions of costly, unnecessary, and often deadly motor vehicle injuries each year. Only when the scale of the problem is finally acknowledged can our nation truly re-dedicate itself to the monumental but essential task of lowering driver speeds, adjusting driver attitudes, and reforming driver behavior. 

Ms. Lewis currently lives with her husband in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
