Road kills is a series of fictional stories of human casualties involuntarily played by animals killed on real road accidents.
It’s been long time that I wanted to tackle this sensible theme and I found my best balance by transposing the human tragedy to animal corpses and show this way the violent nature of this problem.

Road accidents are by far the mayor cause of mortality, permanent disability and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in every part of world. Despite the current state of technology, roads today still pose a threat greater than a war can do. The majority of people on the planet had a parent who died in a road accident. In 2015, a total of 1.250.000 fatalities occurred. Every hour 144 people from all over the world die from road accidents. (source: WHO report)
The issue is still undervalued on all fronts and it involves all social stratification and nationality. Moreover, it is progressively worsening in less developed countries.
Increasing road safety is not only a technical challenge to face, but, for a great part, it is a complex cultural and educational challenge.
