“Accidents” and corporate manslaughter

One of my sayings is, “Most accidents are not accidents. They are events contrived by the rules and design of the road.” Recent fatal “accidents” in Wales involving teenage men prompt me to add “an inadequate driving test.” It’s absurd to put partially-trained drivers in charge of latent killing machines, and add them to the cauldron of defective regulation. Pre-requisites for a driving licence should be cycling proficiency, a rider’s licence, skidpan training, and hours of virtual reality to drum home the consequences of inappropriate speed. My charge of corporate manslaughter against traffic authorities and policymakers still stands.
