During an average lifetime a person will spend 1490 days inside a car and respond to the question “are we there yet?” 228 times. Within the sheet metal cockpit there is this sensation of safety from the outside world, safeguarded by anonymity, away from prying eyes, a machine among many machines. Within those two square meters of moving privacy, there are no moral obligations and prohibitions, laws and impositions. The fleeting border between public and private is suddenly confused, the impenetrable metal fortress is struck by a flash that dazzles, scares, amuses or leaves those within indifferent. For a centesimal fraction of a second the frantic motion of the car is interrupted, as the “Autovelox” [Speedcam] stops time and re-presents it through the images.
