Finally, automobiles are killing machines with over 36,000 deaths and a grand total of 10.8 million car accidents occurred in 2009. Just be happy that you weren’t one of those horrible killing.

Cars are a great to have but lets not make them hurt our wallets, people and most importantly our planet any
