Based on thousands of hours of research and preparation, and the outcome, I’d argue that we were far safer than the average driver, at any speed.

That’s why I now work in automotive safety technology, while simultaneously lobbying for increasing drivers licensing standards, and improving road design to protect pedestria Read more
