Reckless driving, deadlier than terror

Biking Elsewhere[B' Spokes: It amazes me that there is no observable difference between a terrorist attack and just an accident but there is a whole world of difference on the reaction to either event. A car crashes into a government building as a terrorist attack and all government buildings get cement barricades to protect that space. A car crashes into pedestrians on the sidewalk and the reaction is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

So a terrorists has no respect for life, does someone who drinks and drives? Text and drives? Speeds and drives? So we end up with a situation where nothing is done to prevent 30,000 traffic deaths but a few terrorists attacks steps are taken so it can't happen again.]

The article that got me on this tangent: http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/reckless-driving-deadlier-terror-article-1.3177621
