Reducing alcohol-related (or soda-related) deaths simply spreads certain death among other factors. Some other cause will take it's place as the 4th leader. What's the point? Trying to get accidents and natural causes to the top, doesn't seem like a worthy goal for humanity, to me.

An opinion doesn't require a solution, especially since it doesn't provide any facts to characterize.

There's no evidence that the security industry has been failing by adopting tools and methods that quite a few people use. The fact that there are few critical systems (that I use daily) which use username/password as the sole security credentials is a huge win over my experiences in '00. I think the security industry has pushed hard and made a serious dent.

I was suggesting that the bulk of the complaints are likely coming from cabbies.

Michael Peevey mentions "safey rules" but then goes on to 'lacking airport permits, as well as lacking proper "trade dress" on their vehicles and lacking proof of insurance.' Ok, lacking proof of insurance I can understand. So carry papers in the glovebox and all is well.
Airport permits? That's just money denied to the airports. I'd wager the complaints that are not from cabbies are from the airport authorities for this very reason.
Trade dress? Fine, slap on a cheap magnetic sign. That is not a safety issue.

They dress is up as "safety rules" but the real motives are financial.

The end of labor is to gain leisure.
