"Nobody panics when everything goes according to plan...Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos...You know the thing about chaos? It's fear" - The Joker

No one gets outraged about traffic fatalities because it is just a part of the system, an unfortunate but necessary byproduct of the car culture. For the most part, we unflinchingly accept the risks of the car culture because "that's just the way things are". A faulty design in a car upsets the established order. The risks of driving are accepted and apologized for. Create a risk that you can't see that hides in the background, like a faulty part, and that's a reason for fear and outrage.
