I find it very suspicious that, although we could save more lives by acknowledging we are in the 21st Century and removing unnecessary road users, as we do for Railway lines & airport runways but instead greenly promote the opposite and refuse to focus more on real accident causes too, all this hand wringing is going on at all. Why does road safety need to be so anti driver? It wouldn't be lefty greeny otherwise; that's why!
To follow the logic of The Green Road Safety Industry, we should stop all driving and have road safety Nirvanna but then kill far more than we are saving on the road. So you see where driver-less cars are fitting into the equation now. See the mass cull of driverless
So don't let's let the alarmists make life even harder for drivers in this election year. Get your candidate to pledge support for genuine road safety and thus drivers. Is your politician on your side?
