Cars kill just as many people in the US as guns. This makes using a vehicle as a weapon is a perfect method of clandestine warfare and terrorism since such attacks are almost never prosecuted as first degree murder or terrorism outside of Israel, which such attacks occur daily as obvious terrorist attacks.

Many of these incidents appear to use DUI, elderly driving, health issue, drugs, argument or texting as an excuse for deliberate acts of terror. Some are combined with stopping to attack or stab people or engage police in gunfire. In Israel or Canada these are often just terrorist attacks, no one suspects this could also be a hidden motive to "accidents" in the United States such as a half-blind driver accidentally hitting two Army recuiters and dragging one for miles in Minnesota.

Which kills more? Guns or cars? The answer (about equal) will surprise you. CLAIRE MCCARTHY, MD | CONDITIONS | JUNE 17, 2015  Here’s a question for you: Which causes more deaths, motor vehicle traffics accidents or firearms? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2013, 33,804 people died from motor vehicle traffic accidents — and 33, 636 died from firearms.  They kill the same number of people.  I was really surprised by this statistic — mostly because of how we differently we think about safety with each.

Vehicular manslaughter[edit]

This section contains those cases where only vehicles were used to attack people. Since it may be quite difficult to distinguish accidents, or cases of reckless driving from those incidents where the driver, or pilot, had the intention to harm others, only those cases are included where it is clear that the vehicle was applied as a weapon and crashed deliberately into people, other vehicles, or buildings. Also, those cases where a rampage killer used an armed vehicle, such as a tank, or a fighter aircraft, to shoot others are listed here.

Wikipedia: Vehicle based attacks[edit]

In the 2000s, there have been a number of vehicle based attacks in which terrorists usedearthmovers or other motor vehicles to run over pedestrians or to attack vehicles.[16] Some examples of such attacks include the 2006 Jerusalem bulldozer attack and the Omeed Aziz Popal SUV rampage.
Compared to suicide-bomb attacks, using vehicles as weapons is easier to plan and carry out without detection. The tactic does not require acquiring explosives. The weapon, a standard street-legal vehicle, is readily available in the target country and can be used without raising suspicion. According to a report by Stratfor global intelligence, using a vehicle as a terrorist tactic is nearly as effective, yet not as destructive as a suicide bombing.[16]

Police say the SUV driver was "approximately 80" years old, while the the driver of the Cadillac fled, but was later found. Evidently it was ruled an accident and not a deliberate coordinated attack as neither of the drivers was identified or charged with any traffic violation.

    October 14, 2015 Boston: Box truck, car collide head on in Middleton

    December 20, 2015 1 killed 30 injured 1 arrested. No motive Lakeisha Holloway Accused in Las Vegas Baby On Board Terrorist Style Vehicle Rampage A 24-year-old Oregon woman had her 3-year-old daughter in the car when she allegedly intentionally drove her 1996 Oldsmobile onto a sidewalk and into dozens of pedestrians Sunday night on the Las Vegas strip, as she would drive back on the curve to hit more people. One person was killed. After the attack, she drove to a casino, left her toddler in the car, and told a valet parker she had run over some people and requested that he call 911.  Deputy Chief Zimmerman announced "This was not an act of terrorism. Initial investigation appears this was intentional" but others said that terror could not be completely ruled out either.  It is said that she was stressed out by being homeless and living in her car and hassled by people who would let her park. She may have had some conflict with the father of her child, and that she wanted others to feel the hurt in her life. One of her cousins, LaShay Hardaway, said she was a successful, overachiever and this wasn’t something she would ever do. Holloway reportedly told police “I am hurting, and I want others to feel pain!” and she gave a motive to authorities which they were not "comfortable" releasing but it did not indicate any connection to terrorism.
