Re: So anything that's not 100% effective fails?

As the saying goes, "Locks only keep honest people out!"

Don't tell my insurance company but when I was comprehensively broken and entered, the rear garden door was unlocked. Fortunately the perps had the presence of mind and social responsibility to use a crowbar on a wooden window that was strangely and unusually locked.

Remember joyriders and burnt out cars everywhere?

Technology fixed that, not legislation.

Legislation is one thing, enforcement is another.

It is an interesting thought to consider that if instead of prosecuting people for speeding - a technical offence - every RTA was investigated and any guilt such as speeding was prosecuted as dangerous driving or without due care and attention, we might have a better standard of driving on the roads.

At least it would focus people's minds less on watching the road furniture and their speedos and more on not hitting other people.
