"The chain of accountability for these cables goes to tax payers via elected officials (and layers upon layers of bureaucrats). If you want to change that, elect someone who runs on the platform of total government transparency.'

You keep trying to make the same point over and over again. Without success. It has NOTHING to do with electing good officials, that is usually impossible as we have a choice of criminal oligarch scumbucket 'A' or criminal scumbucket 'B' with the only difference being the letter after their names.

This is a nation of LAWS, not of men; our laws should be designed so that whatever crooked Asshole we elect has no way to hide their actions. Procedures should be in place, and restrictions on the power and secrecy of each and every govermental entity and everyone working for it, that protect us from the WORST person that could concievably hold the position.

maybe it is just me, but wouldn't it be easier to just teach drivers to watch the hell out for pedestrians?

oh right, my bad, in this world no one can be bothered to look out for themselves or anyone else... we need to pay $150 for an extra to make our nice, quiet car contribute to the already horrific noise polution.

Seems to me it's the pedestrians that should be looking out for the cars, not the opther way around. Any idiot crossing a street without looking is a drag on the gene poole anyway (obviously not counting blind folks)

What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
