Wow, I don't believe this thread!
We have ahd big debates about safety on the slopes, and about how one person might be a good skier, but not another, so we need to exercise caution, and be responsible, and now we have:
Drive with your headlights on
Break speed limits
And when you break the law, try to wriggle out, because it's not an important law.
Mmm. bright headlights & front foglights used when not necessary distract other drivers (the same way they distract & confuse lasers) This can cause others to have accidents! (but I guess, if it's not you, it doesn't matter - "I'm all right, Jack")
So, if I break the law, and someone else is in the car with me, does this make them think - I can do this too, whether or not they can cope with the speed?
Does it mean that in the future motoring law will just be reduced to "He who has the biggest/strongest car wins" If that's the case, I'mm going to buy a Volvo R5 for short journeys, and an artic for longer distances!
Is the law there to protect the innoocent & punish the guilty?
Is it there for our (you, me and other road users) safety?
Or is it just something to forget about?
Mmm. I think I'll start driving on the other side of the road - it's up to everyone else to avoid me.
So, think back to the ski safety discussion, and take a bit of responsibility for yourself & others.
