Here driving is, as is everything, a "right" and an "entitlement". In MI you don't even have to read English to get a license. If you get 16 out of 20 wrong on your no-brainer renewal exam, they give you the right answers and ask "Is that clear?" Then you get your new license. There is no road test after you first get licensed at age 16; you're set for life.
Safety is the responsibility of Ralph Nader, NBC Dateline, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, aka "Appropriate Huge Tax $ for NHTSA and Institute Fascism in the Auto Mfg. Industry-PAC", at the behest of the lawyers, and at the expense of consumers/taxpayers.
That'll be 2 cents.
