Would you let someone stick you in a two-tonne metal box on wheels and send you hurtling down a flat piece of ground at 100kph, in a crowd of other 2+ tonne metal boxes doing the same, while not three feet away is another crowd of 2+ tonne wheeled metal boxes going 100kph in the opposite direction... and the only thing preventing utter disaster is the reflexes and attention span of the average human being?

That's basically what driving is. If you're dumb enough to do that, you deserve to crash in a pile of twisted wreckage and flaming gasoline.

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
