They might still be alive if they tried EOC a few times.

People have an extreme paralyzing baseless fear of being behind the wheel of a moving vehicle with no power steering or brakes.
See it here: And laugh.
Do you ever practice "EOC" (Engine OFF Coasting) - Virginia Beach Gas Prices

I bet some of these people think that no power renders the brakes and steering completely non functional.

A highly mechanized and technological world largely inhabited by people who have absolutely no idea how any of it works is a recipe for disaster. As you can see.
