Let look at two examples based on driving. Driving is a privileged, not a right, and therefore it should be easy to pass laws to severely reduce the death of innocent people. Three groups are arguably predominately responsible for deaths of innocent bystanders involving vehicles. One are drunk drivers, which are being dealt with as a nation. The other are the very young and the very old. We could cut the deaths caused by these dangerous drivers significantly by two simple laws. The first would restrict the driving of any minor. Right now it is restricted for a number of months, or a year, but we could easily say 1 passenger and no driving after 10, without a special waiver, for anyone under 19, with any accident resulting in a year increase.This would likely result in the deaths of families of four caused by distracted teens a few times a year, and well as a myriad of other deaths. It would likely reduce insurance of all of us.
Likewise we could demand that anyone over 70 take a full drivers exam every year. If anyone over 60 has a ticket, they have to take a full drivers exam. This would end the death of innocents shopping at farmers markets.
Why do we not make these common sense precautions that save lives? Because we do not want to infringe on the rights of the great majority of drivers who are skilled and law abiding. Just because a few show criminal negligence, we do not punish everyone.
