Imagine the picture, reader.
A truck returns from a distant trip with its usual load. Driving up to the terminal point, the driver slams on the brakes, but instead of stopping, the truck sharply accelerates and explodes. The explosion is of such a force, that a building from the reinforced concrete is completely destroyed and all the windows in the surrounding houses shatter. The driver is found guilty, because he violated the road traffic regulations, which caused the accident. This is how the Chernobyl catastrophe appears in the eyes of the general public for 20 years.
