Why would you want to increase your risk of getting hit by a car?

Your assumptions about safety and risk, however commonsensical, are incorrect. In streets that have been redesigned for shared space, the rate of collisions, injuries and deaths have fallen close to zero.

the first law that should be changed is the one that is broken the most and by most accounts that would be theft.

Really? Most people, most of the time, do not steal cars. Theft is extremely rare compared to, say, rolling through stop signs or speeding, which very large majorities of people commit regularly.
