I feel strongly about this matter.
Members of my family have been involved in three separate car accidents within the past month and a half. Two cars were totaled — one belonging to my family, one to someone else — and any of the three accidents could easily have resulted in a fatality or at least major injuries (but, mercifully, did not).
Over the previous several years, my wife and I have been hit by a drunk while stopped for a red light, hit by a semi-truck while waiting for a gaggle of geese to cross a country road in front of us, and so on and so forth.
A young woman that I seriously dated in college was killed when a drunk driver hit her car. A close friend in our last California ward was killed by a driver who was preoccupied with unwrapping a hamburger and hit her from the side at full speed at an otherwise quiet intersection.
Thanks to my friend Gordon Thomasson for bringing this ad to my attention.
