In 1908, Henry Ford dreamed of a world where every person could have an automobile parked in his or her garaje. Today, that dream is a reality.
Car accidents are the cause of over one Million deaths each year. And the pollution that they generate causes an even larger number of casualties.
These figures turn Ford´s dream into a nightmare.
Cars are more than transportation. They are a symbol of independence and status. A family member. A way of life: An addiction.
