Coerced assurance making “accidents” more likely


Have you been wondering why even a small car costs so much and has grown so fat it won’t fit in the garage, why drivers can’t see to stay in lane or drive safely?  Why do gadgets proliferate but genuine developments come so slowly?

Eric Peters describes how safety regulations are making accidents more likely.  Mightn’t a well-designed roll cage be better than designing hardened cars with perimeters that drivers can’t see from their seats?

It will be interesting to see some insurance and hospital data published on the effects of modern car design on the frequency and severity of injuries.

Does laboratory accreditation also conceal what is really going on away from the things that are amenable to recording?
