Next time you drive down a motorway have a look at how " Most Folk" drive along ridiculously close to each other, do they take safety seriously?
I can think of stretches of roads were speeding motorists have caused numerous accidents primarily because they all drive to fast. Once the speed cameras went up guess what? They all slowed down. Where they all suddenly taking safety seriously?
I agree that a great many people drive far too fast and close to the car in front, even worse is when you leave a proper amount of space some clown moves into it. My assertion that most folk take safety seriously was referring to those that indulge in risky activities, not everyone.
Do you not think driving on public roads is a risky activity?
All activity carries risk some minor, some major but I would say being a road user of any kind carries quite a large risk of injury as the figures show.
Although I see our local A & E says that its top of the list injury are now from DIY accidenta! accidents
