Is it? I guess that means we should all be driving Volvo's sedans with
governors limiting us to 55 mph. Nobody should ever drive a semi--too
dangerous to other people on the road. Nobody should ever touch a
motorcycle--too dangerous for the driver. People who are unqualified
might get behind the wheel. It'd be better if all we had were safe,
medium sized cars because then I can hire any moron I want and know
he'll do a passable job of driving.
