Euthanasia on the Roads?
Let us, however, give credit where it can be given and accept gratefully the proposal to transfer the control of the greater trunk roads to the central authority with the prospect of providing separate tracks for pedestrians and cyclists. For the more we watch the intermingling on one track of all types of traffic from gigantic lorries to donkey-carts and school-boys' push-bikes, the more we are convinced that a cardinal blunder was made at the outset when power-driven vehicles were allowed to invade roads built for men and horses instead of being compelled like the trains to run on tracks specially built for them. Even now it is not too late to disentangle them from what are left of the humans and horses and confining them to racecourses where their drivers can kill only themselves and one another. (It is too late to protest against that form of euthanasia).
