No More "Accidents"
- Before the labor movement, factory owners would say "it was an accident" when American workers were injured in unsafe conditions.
- Before the movement to combat drunk driving, intoxicated drivers would say "it was an accident" when they crashed their cars.
- Planes don’t have accidents. They crash. Cranes don’t have accidents. They collapse. And as a society, we expect answers and solutions.
- Traffic crashes are fixable problems, caused by dangerous streets and unsafe drivers. They are not accidents. Let’s stop using the word "accident" today.
