The well-built Model T gave unseen power to American drivers unlike any horse carriage any driver has ever seen; "You of the automobile class are utterly regardless of the danger to pedestrians”. Citizens are oblivious to the power that a good American produced Ford engines, because of this, new drivers created safety problems for pedestrians. Due to the thrill that a motor vehicle on the road brings to a driver, they feel a sense of empowerment as if they are better than a normal pedestrian walking across the street. For example, an individual in New York City was charged with speeding and the judge claimed that drivers like the defendant just “toot [their] horns to see the people run, but you never slow up." In this scenario the judge conveys his claim that the defendant attempts to take control of the road without giving the right of way to the defenseless pedestrians on the roads.
