Sorry, I didn't know where else to put this, but I had to put it somewhere. It's an episode of The War on Cars podcast called The Driver. I found it difficult to listen to but it has stuck with me, and I thought you guys may get something useful from her story.

This show usually focuses on the victims of traffic violence, and that is where the focus belongs. But in this episode, we hear the first-person story of a woman, Shane Snowdon, who killed someone with her car.

I read the transcript. I'm sure listening to the audio would be even more upsetting.

One line that really stood out was from the host at 11:16.

"When you kill someone with a gun you deal with the criminal justice system. When you kill someone with a car you deal with an insurance company."
