Car Crash Culture

This book explores the grim underside of America's cult of the automobile and the frequently conspiratorial speculations that arise whenever people die in cars. Looking at fatal celebrity car accidents and other examples of death by automobile through personal memoir and forensic reports, cultural critics ponder people's fascination with car crashes. They explore car crash conspiracy theories, the automobile as a site of murder, car crash films, and the notion of the "accident." The book features original essays by such underground icons as Kenneth Anger and Adam Parfrey. Essays cover the deaths of Albert Camus, Jackson Pollock, James Dean, Jayne Mansfield, Princess Diana, Princess Grace, and Mary Jo Kopechine, among others... My advice : don't read that book while driving.

I think the victims of car accidents nowadays are mostly teens. Because of two reasons, alcohol and mobile phones. I know that they are only some of the reasons why accidents occur but I think we should focus more on how to reduce and even eliminate those accidents.
