Sunak’s “sin”

Professor John Adams challenges the validity of safety claims made for seat belts. His risk compensation theory, as I understand it, says that the safer you feel inside your insulated cabin, the more likely you are to take risks and endanger other road-users, because you have no contact with them and no empathy. So the cause of road safety would be better served if we felt less safe. If he had any insight, Rishi wouldn’t apologise for not wearing a seat belt, he would condemn intrusive roads policy that acts to our detriment.
