Some liberals will say that the terrorist car attack in NYC is the price we have to pay for the freedom to own and drive cars. But surely, surely most liberals will now support extensive car control, including severe restrictions on car ownership in heavily populated areas. After today's car attack in NYC, surely every sane, humane person can see that it is time for drastic changes in the availability of cars and the freedom to drive them. Here's what we need, for starters: * An extensive background check on anyone who wants to own a car, whether they buy it from a private party or from a car dealership. * An extensive background check on anyone who wants to rent a car. * Restrictions on how rapidly a car can accelerate if it will be driven in cities with a population of more than 20,000. * A limit of 20 mph on the top speed that cars can attain when driven in or near an inner city or suburbs. Liberals, surely most of you will rise to the occasion now and do the right thing. It is time for America's fetish with car ownership to come to an end. Civilized nations are better than this. Cars kill people.
