Remember two points:
1) Most rules governing vehicles are regulations, not laws. They
are written by bureaucrats who will lose their jobs if there are
no more regulations to write. So we always "need" more
2) Most of the people who run these bureaucracies ride to work in
limosines. Some of them don't even have driver's licenses. In
their elitist minds, just the concept of ordinary "consumers"
even owning cars at all is scary.
Thankgawd cars were invented 100 years ago. If they were invented
today they'd be illegal.
