GETTING YOUR OWN BACK
Just this once, a car gets run over by a cat
It was about time that we decided to dedicate a sculpture to the memory of all the poor creatures who are victims of highway horror! Dogs, cats, frogs, hedgehogs and little flies crushed by cars driving at breakneck speeds.

In many towns, there are monuments to animals who played their part in wars – horses, dogs and pigeons have often helped armies defend their country. And may they be honoured. But there are no public monuments to those animals who have been stupidly mown down by reckless drivers in peace time!
Having said that, nor are there are any plaques or monuments to the memory of humans killed by cars. But if we go down that road, we would have to think about plaques and monuments to the victims of femicide, child abuse, to little old ladies who get robbed, or to small savers who get ripped off by sharks in banks and financial institutions.
You find these everywhere

There will be fewer victims on a day without pedestrians than on a day without cars
At least among the pedestrians
