Letter: Diana, latest victim of the car culture

Sir: Diana may have been indirectly the victim of paparazzi attention, but she was much more directly the victim of car culture, a mindset which in this case made someone think that it was perfectly acceptable to drive recklessly just to get away from unwanted attention.

Some voices in the anti-car-culture lobby are calling for mandatory speed regulators on all motor vehicles. It should give us all pause for thought that such a seemingly extreme measure might well have saved Diana's life along with many thousands more.
