    National statistics reveal that in the year 1975 over 20 000 young persons met death as the result of automobile accidents. Daily accounts in the news appall us, and there are few of us whose lives have not been touched, directly or indirectly, by such tragedy. We are still living the history of the motorcar, within the intricate phenomena of its use and abuse, and the vital place it has had in our economy. Automobilization has, in half a century, instrumented great changes in our lifestyle and influenced our culture; it has altered our concepts of time and distance, our terrain and atmosphere, and revolutionalized commercial enterprise. The immediacy of the auto, its gratifications, its utility, have tended to overwhelm and obscure thoughtful consideration of even the most significant vital implications of its use.
