The reason government can set safety requirements for motor vehicles is because driving is not a right, it is a privilege. Its the same way with
watercraft and airplanes / helicopters / etc.
As for the motive of insurance companies its makes sense. Spending money to fix a car is a hell of a lot cheaper than paying for medical bills.
As for what representatives think I disagree. I have no issues communicating with my elected reps, state and federal, and get a response when needed.
I have been called by my Senator to participate in a town hall to ask questions (was unable to do so).
For all the issues government has it is a place for people to come together. Painting all government officials as worthless overpaid asses who dont
care is also a part of the problem. People have to do more than just bitch. Get involved, talk to your elected officials, vote.
