"It is a beast of a car, it’s got all the safety features you can imagine"

Some questions about this incident:

  • Will anybody suggest that one of the reasons it is a “beast of a car” is precisely because of “ all the safety features you can imagine”, rather than the other way round?
  • Will anybody ask how someone can get away with driving over the motorway speed limit in an urban area?
  • Will future generations ask why cars were produced which can go at over twice the legal motorway speed limit (and that’s many more than “beasts of a car”)?
  • Why is the verdict not one of death through misadventure, rather than “accidental” death following law breaking which endangers others?
