A driver in Porto Alegre, Brazil plowed his car through a mass of cyclists participating in a Critical Mass event, fled the scene and was later arrested and charged with attempted murder.

I really don’t have much more to say. The one take away I have from the video is look at how potentially dangerous/deadly an automobile can actually be.

  1. In many ancient cities the beasts of burden were required to remain outside the city walls because of the potential dangerous and unpredictable behavior of the animals.

    What about cars driven by animals, should they be banned?
