Freedom

In car-free living, eco-friendly, good life, nature, people, pets and domestic animals, wild nature on December 31, 2011 at 16:41

Once when me and kids went to school, other kids told us that a little girl, the sister of one of the pupils, just has been hit by a landrower. At the same time there was this story on the news: “Boy killed as car mounts pavement. An 11-year-old boy has died after a car mounted a pavement and crashed into a group of pedestrians in Bristol. The female driver of the white Ford Focus left the scene of the incident in Eastfield Road, Westbury-on-Trym, leaving the boy trapped underneath. A man was treated for minor injuries, while three other children at the scene were not injured.”

I’m sure there are lots of stories like this, with the double horror of families loosing their loved ones and somebody accidentally becoming a murderer. Kids do behave silly and even experienced driver can loose the control sometime.

Once we’ve all been waiting on a bus stop when suddenly a puppy ran into the road and has been hit by a car.

One day an artists gave me a lift to a workshop along a small countryside road. All the road was covered by killed rabbits, hedgehogs and foxes. I didn’t really felt like admiring “scenic road” she has chosen for me.

 

I should admit, I do often dream how great it would be if I could afford a car and we all could go to exiting places and never fly again. A good friend of mine once told me that she was really happy that she had started driving: it gives such freedom! Yes, but at what price?
