What individuals are we talking about?<quoted text>
Do you believe as population grows we must diminish the rights of individuals to accommodate the population?
On the highways, theyre far safer today. Youre much less likely to be involved in a crash today than years ago. You must go with fatalities per million miles travelled and crashes per 100,000 to obtain accurate information comparing the time periods.
Cars are much safer today than before. With or without wearing the belt.
You still discount the right of the individual to make poor choices.
It's not about one person - with 330+ million people, it's kinda' hard, IMO, to make everyone happy with everything.
Individuals make poor choices all the time. Up here we've had a recent rash of wrong way drivers - a few have resulted in fatalites. Would you prefer that the "government" not do anything and trust that the individual would remedy the situation? I think I'd rather have a leadership that steps in and makes things just a little safer. I don't want to be taking my grandson home and come across a set of headlights coming at me with nowhere to go.
