Without going as far as talking about freedom, a thing many people are seemingly willing to give up easily, what do you think would happen if driving lessons were dispensed properly, drivers were encouraged to take on advanced courses in exchange of insurance reduction(substantial ofc), and people who claim that they hate driving (and as such are bound to be among the worst drivers) being barred from driving a car/bike ?
How many lives could be saved this way ? Of course for that people would need to spend the time and sometimes money to work on themselves which seems to be out of the question here. It seems easier to blame the people that actually are going the extra mile( those who like and enjoy driving), than the ones who are really responsible( too much to list, authorities, insurance companies, driving haters...)
