Well lets see. I basicly stated that driving was a priveledge that is given out all too freely and no one cought on. I still say get rid of the problem and not the symptom. Don;t hand drivers licenses out to of farts who cannot see to drive just because they are renewing their license. Don't go giving the license back to known DUI drivers. Don't go giving a license to a teen who has shown the inability to drive or maturaty to drive safely. Granted it is a public road, but my vehicle is not public. I bought and paid for it. Also you guys fail to see the implications of the whole insurance arguement. pretty soon you folks are going to make it where the cars have sensors in them to detect seatbelt use and speed and all this other jazz and people are going to have no choice in the matter. It is that mentality that is driving this land into the DIRT.
Bugweed I am alog younger than you, but I can remember the days of being able to go to the creek and swim and explore the creek. You cannot do that today. You would get in trouble for something or have a child predator loose ready to kidnap you. Kids cannot be kids anymore and people cannot drive or do anything without someone else having something to say about it.
I said it before and I will say it again!!! There are plenty of other things that cause a hurt to peoples wallet, and when you go banning or regulating them all then there is bound to be problems. Micromanaging never works unless your a slave owner working some slaves. SOOO I will continue to drive without my seatbelt unless it is raining.
endorsing the government to make legislation on anything is a slippery slope, and we just might be coming up to a steep hill. I still have the prediction I will be screaming "I told you so" before I die.
