"My driving a car is statistically riskier to my physical safety than riding a bus. But I drive, because I have more control there. Sometimes convenience wins out over security."
My second analogy still stands (altered for clarity): "Just because I'll happily engage in one risky behavior doesn't mean I should now climb a ladder when I could use stairs instead."
To make my analogy fit better, the two things should be unrelated: Just because I'll happily drive a car doesn't mean I should now climb a ladder when I could use stairs instead.
