Traffic Tragedies

Urban legends about traffic accidents.

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of contemplating our own mortality is in its randomness. It's one thing to pass away after a long lifetime of accomplishments; it's quite another to have all our hopes and dreams and expectations suddenly shattered by a tragic accident. Nearly all of us drive or travel in automobiles several times a day; no type of accident is more ubiquitous to us than traffic accidents.
