People need to look at the money involved in the situation. Things are not always what they seem.

In my opinion, some of the resistance to reducing danger comes from the media, and the legal, police, insurance and medical industries.

I could be wrong, but take a look at any of the 20 different law firms, promising large cash settlements to "accident victims" on prominent billboards, radio ads, and on the side of HSR buses. Do you think they want "accidents" to go away? Does anyone working in their offices? Do the insurance companies? The cops? The court officials? The hospital workers? EMS workers? The radio station? The newspaper. The HSR?

None of these influential folks, and again, this is just my opinion, are likely to want collision frequency or severity to decrease. Why would they? An increase in safety means a decrease in business, for a lot of people.
