DOMESTIC NEWSLINE - Turkish Daily News May 24, 2006: "'Traffic accidents God's will':
ANK - Turkish Daily News
Traffic guides distributed to students by Istanbul's Beyoglu Municipality describe traffic accidents as God's will, reports said on Wednesday.
The booklets were produced by the municipality to provide information to students about traffic rules.
The introduction was written by Beyoglu Mayor Ahmet Misbah Demircan and the book was compiled by Halis Ece.
Page 59 of the book says, �Due to centrifugal forces, when one turns the wheel, the vehicle is pushed towards the outside. If the centrifugal force overcomes the resistance provided by the tires, vehicles overturn. Without doubt, traffic accidents, just like all other small or large incidents, are God's will. That's why claims made by some that traffic accidents have nothing to do with fate are a violation of our beliefs.� "
