On the first day of the summer holiday in 1994, I jumped into my little blue Ford Escort and drove from Istanbul to Malatya. I found a cheap hotel, then went to a restaurant. I was on my own so I got a table facing the television and sat down to eat and relax. The whole hour I was there, the TV played a series of stories about fatal road accidents near Malatya. There was no anonymity, no subtlety – the camera continually zoomed in on yet another mangled face, emphasising the true horror and hazard of road travel. It really set me up for the next day of furious driving.
