We need to go back to the concept that used to exist, at least in Colorado and Pennsylvania and perhaps most places) if a motor vehicle operator had an accident, that operator received a citation for not having the vehicle under control as the law required motor vehicle operator to maintain control over the vehicle at all times, no excuses! By definition if a vehicle had an accident it was not under control of the operator. Sometimes a second ticket was written for driving too fast for conditions, following the same kind of logic. Then we started accepting excuses and drivers no longer had to keep their vehicles under control, everyone else could be found to blame and the motor vehicle operator could get off Scott free. If you do not thing that motor vehicle operators love that, just read all the advice given to the pedestrians on this site.
