And I also agree with your argument, the fact still remains, people are 
generally stupid, and we can't revoke/pull everybody from the road and 
teach everybody to be a F1 driver. In an indeal super world, may be, but 
not in our current one. A lot of people don't want to learn, nor care 
for it. I know 'we' might be different, but 99% of the them other 
weirdos aren't.
