MURDER MACHINES: Why Cars Will Kill 30,000 Americans This Year. The tone and angle are a bit off, though. To wit: “'Motordom,' as the collective of special interests including oil companies, auto makers, auto dealers, and auto clubs dubbed itself, launched a multi-pronged campaign to make city streets more welcoming to drivers, though not necessarily safer. Through a series of social, legal, and physical transformations, these groups reframed arguments about vehicle safety by placing blame on reckless drivers and careless pedestrians, rather than the mere presence of cars.”

Well, the mere presence of cars doesn't kill (I bet the author is pro gun control also). Nevertheless it's still a fascinating read, with great graphic art.
