Just like the "cigarettes kill dogma" doesn't explain the millions of people who smoke every day and don't develop lung cancer, right? You're really grasping at straws here.
Nope, that is backed by science. Try again Strawman.
Actually, it's you and the rest of the "I'll drive as fast as I want" crowd that's claiming there's a magical scientific principle that somehow cancels the laws of physics and makes that safe.
I never claimed that, Strawman.
I said I drive as fast as I want and I haven't crashed in 30 years. I'd like to know how does this fit in with your "speed kills" hypothesis? As on the surface it seems to blow a big hole in it.
If you recall, I asked back at the beginning for you to provide evidence of that claim. Your response was a Wikipedia link to the scientific method. 'Nuff said.
Wrong again. Go back and read the thread, it's documented there for all to see.
"The fact that 85% of the people that drive by my house decide to drive like reckless idiots doesn't magically make it safer for them to do so."
You made the first claim and are still yet to back it up with anything other than opinion
You then backed it up with another claim
"this supposed 85% rule has zero applicability in a residential setting"
This also hasn't been backed up by anything yet.
If you say so. Meanwhile, I've provided actual research and you've provided nothing but your own blowhard opinion.
Yes you posted actual research to something other than the topic at hand, as I already pointed out.
I posted a reference to the scientific method because you seem to not know how it works.
Like every other "speed kills" dogma I've ever seen, it's pseudo-science at it's finest.
