Hey Donncha —

it really is absurdly obsessed-about in Ireland; I can’t recall ever hearing about it on the news in California, apart from massive multi-car pileups.

I’d like to see more concentration on drink drivers, and the state of the roads — many of the roads I travel on regularly are poorly signposted or laid out. When that’s combined with some mediocre drivers, they react poorly and put everyone into danger — but blaming *just* the drivers is only taking half of the problem into account, IMO.
