A dystopian story in which government safety features on cars have gone overboard so that the cars are unwieldy and few people drive for pleasure. The focus of the story is one such driver who drives an unimproved MG Roadster on the back roads, but encounters drivers in improved cars who try to crash into older cars knowing that they will be safe but destroying the older car.
