Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety’s Jackie Gillan remembered Clarence at http://saferoads.org/2016/11/12/statement-on-the-death-of-clarence-ditlow/
It is true, as the centuries old saying states “Whoever saves one life, saves all of humanity”.
It is also true that Clarence’s life saved all of humanity many times over and will continue to do so long into the future.
As Newton said we stand on the shoulders of giants.
But as Clarence would have urged we must continue his good work since in just the U.S.A. today
* 100 lives are lost to vehicle violence injuries each day
* 400 Americans suffer serious injuries each day from vehicle violence
* $2 Billion (DOT values) are lost each day to vehicle violence
And all this at a time when never before in the history of humankind have we had available more technology and science to end vehicle violence in or by new vehicles in a decade.
