Over the past week I've watched in the news the account of the runaway Toyota Prius down the San Diego freeway. I did some research and I found an article concerning this incident. After reading this article I feel the owner of the car was just trying to cash in on the recent Toyota recall. What has caused this madness? Is it the capitalistic society that we live in today that is making American people so greedy? Or, is just the decline of America’s morals? Economically speaking is it easier to sue a big company for a huge settlement than to make an honest dollar through hard work? Is this a morally or ethically responsible way to operate? I probably have no right to judge this man but, isn’t it ultimately the responsibility of the vehicle owner to ensure the safety of their vehicle?
