Lou Lombardo can hardly believe the theme of the Republican Convention, Make America Safe Again, when he looks at the nation’s political record on Vehicle Violence. See his thoughts on this travesty:
Democrats LBJ and Carter made the major historical positive contributions to reduce vehicle violence.
However, President Obama has been a major vehicle safety disappointment. See http://www.
Today our clear and present danger of vehicle violence amounts to:
$X Trillions Losses – about $2 billion per day
As we in the U.S. approach our 4 millionth death from vehicle violence, we must remember that we still have no goal to end vehicle violence.
There is a Vision Zero Goal that America still does not have – but others do. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
As my 7 year old grandson taught me “With great power comes great responsibility.” (He learned it from Spiderman.)
So why does the President of the U.S.A. not adopt a Vision Zero Goal?
President Obama: Meet Marianne Karth. She has gathered 20,000 signatures on a petition to you to adopt a national Vision Zero Goal. “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs. See http://annaleahmary.com/
