(8) - Guess what - pedestrian crossings kill people ?

Auto engineers claim that because cars succeed in killing more people on pedestrian crossings than at other locations along a street, “crossings make accidents happen”.
I have been told to be polite here, so with some difficulty I will restrict myself to suggesting that they are not being honest. Auto engineers believe people are “traffic flow impedance units” which are an unacceptable intrusion on their urban racetrack, so they are using the excuse of safety to remove them.
