I am infuriated by the fact that we just lost 17 members of our community in South Carolina, eight of whom drowned in their cars.
The number of deaths due to drownings in cars every year reflects the negligence of the car industry.
Why have there not been more lawsuits against these companies that have built and sold so many billions of dollars worth of cars that can kill people by essentially locking them inside until they drown?
How many people understand that the electrical system can fail within seconds of the wheels hitting water?
Why can these car companies get away with advertising high safety ratings when they are the cause of death for hundreds of drownings every year?
It was not the floods that caused the death of those eight individuals; it was the failure of these car companies, and they need to take responsibility for their lives.
