We have to ban driving (satire)
Very few people realize that driving represents one of the world’s most dangerous activities that hundreds of millions of people conduct on a daily basis. After all, according to the WHO, roughly 1.35 million people die annually as a result of traffic accidents.
ONE POINT THREE FIVE MILLION.
Similarly, 20-50 million people are physically injured because of roadside crashes, whereas tens of millions of accidents occur with only material damages, as reported by car accident statistics.
Based on 2020 logic:
-In light of these statistics, We should henceforth ban driving of vehicles of any kind forevermore, and declare a new normal where everyone just walks around everywhere in full suits of full plate armor to also eliminate tripping deaths-which are recorded in the hundreds of thousands every year.
-Those who refuse to walk around everywhere all day, everyday, in full plate armor, should be denied basic services and access to public spaces. If you trip into me and make me trip, you are a public health hazard. If I wear armor and you don’t, my armor doesn’t work. Get it?
-We should also fine and/or imprison anyone who continues driving their vehicle, purchases, leases, or rents a new vehicle, or who openly defies these new guidelines for any reason. Science tells us that ‘defiance is a sign of sociopathy’ so...
-We should also censor any conspiracy theorists or self proclaimed “driving experts” who say that driving should be allowed despite the risk. (We will be speaking to Dorsey & the Zuck about this within the hour.)
-We should make it impossible for car manufactures to remain in business by levying heavy fines on them so large that they stretch the boundaries of all reason and rationality, should they not cease making, selling, renting or leasing vehicles of any kind.
It is imperative we get the right messaging out to the safety-loving people of the world without resistance. PR Messaging proposals:
This is about saving lives.
It’s the only way.
We are in this fight together.
What would Terry Fox do?
Walkers are hero’s.
Drivers are zero’s.
Your body NOT your choice.
Walkers lives matter.
It’s not ok to be a driver.
No BonJovi, it’s NOT your life and it’s now or never that you stop being selfish and turn in your keys.
Build back better.
New normal suggestions cont’d:
-To mitigate the blacklash and public outcry towards these new guidelines, We should start a public shaming campaign and begin calling those annoying freedom people (who want people to just keep on dying from driving due to their innate sociopathy) “anti walkers” or “vehicular manslaughter deniers” or “literally Hitler” and shut down all their social media, freeze their PayPal accounts, and send them death threats on a regular basis so as to prevent them from disseminating their hateful and cruel message of “I can drive if I want to” or “it’s my life” or “I have an impeccable driving record” or “there are millions of ways to die!” Or even, if they simply question our benevolent actions in any way shape or form.
-We should spend billions of taxpayer $$$ to erect re-education facilities to assist with the deprogramming process required to help people eliminate their deadly driving addictions and highly dangerous and misguided beliefs in the ‘right to freedom of movement.’
-We should locate a multi-billionaire somewhere in Davos or China to see if they can pour ungodly amounts of money into the mainstream media and into the pockets of local politicians worldwide to help us build everyone’s minds back better and save the world.
-All parking spaces will be refurbished into safe spaces.
-All “driveways” will be re-named:
-All bus lanes will be re-named “bus free-walk don’t run-zones.” (Running must also be banned due to slippage risk. People running in full plated armor might be a health risk according to the WHO.)
-You will be required to turn in your vehicles to your local ministry of safety & compliance. Failure to do so will result in your immediate expulsion from planet earth.
-Should you feel that these new guidelines are somehow ridiculous, outlandish, or borderline psychotic, just ask yourself these simple questions you tin foil hat wearing death loving lunatic:
Do you not care about the 1.35 million lives we could save by banning driving?
Do you not care about the 50 million who are injured every year by driving?
Do you not want a death-free world?
Is all you care about having the wind blowing through your hair whilst driving to the beach and humming Tom Petty without being harassed? Because in case you missed the fatality numbers...that’s the mindset of a killer.
Remember, only you can prevent death.
Join us in our mission to save lives by making the world driver-free.
Together, we can make life totally boring, highly controlled, complicated and utterly depressing.
