The level of debate about roads on BBC Today and PM is pitiful. On self-driving cars and 20mph recently, “experts” cited accident figures and blamed driver error. They never see that our problems stem from the mistaken rules and a correspondingly misguided driving test.
The rules pit us against each other. The driving test teaches intolerance. Policy is peopled by morons. Experts see only symptoms.
In negating our better nature, the system is the underlying cause. Conventional thinking, to which the BBC gives exclusive airtime, perpetuates the myths that block reform.
