Cars and trucks not only destroy our environment, but they can destroy each of us instantly!

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER

Under New York State law, if you use a gun or a knife to kill someone it's a crime. But if you kill someone with a car, as long as you're not drinking, it's perfectly legal. In most cases, you'll get away scot-free without even the bother of a traffic ticket.

While that may be perfectly acceptable here, murder-by-car is not legitimate everywhere. In Amsterdam, it is a crime to hit a pedestrian, and the driver's license is revoked -- permanently.
