More than 30,000 deaths on U.S. roads every year. It doesn't work.

That is a reactive system and exactly why it doesn't work.

What driving a vehicle without proper training and licensing basically amounts to is handing everyone of age a loaded gun with no real training and telling them they can use it until they hurt or kill someone.

An automobile can be used to kill a lot of people, without the need to reload. Some people have figured that out.

Those are my thoughts on it, and I'll leave it at that.
