In designing SUVs for Daimler-Chrysler, Clotaire Rapaille carefully researched the psychology of SUV buyers and the construction of their identities and developed designs that appealed to an orientation to the car that ”If there’s a crash, I want the other guy to die”. Note – not ”I want to be safer”, but ”I want to impose violence on someone else”. In other words, one can just as easily read the history of the automobile subject as a history of violence and domination as a history of freedom and equality.

– Mathew Paterson, Automobile Politics, s. 164-165
