I have been noticing that a horrific number of lives are lost to car accidents due to driver carelessness, including not buckling their children or requiring them to buckle themselves. Instead of trying to find a way to make it work, we need to stop this loss of life immediately and since many of the adults in our lives aren’t taking the dangers seriously enough the only solution seems to be to ban taking children as passengers in cars. For years we got along without cars, you can get a bike or take a bus. If that doesn’t work for you, get a new job or move to another city, these are lives at stake. Why expect the public to be responsible when we can just stop putting children in cars at all.
Sounds like a plan.
Truthfully, if this worked to save lives, I would actually go along with it. Anything to save the life of a kid when no other options prove effective.June 23, 2017 3:17 pm at 3:17 pm #1303057
If we don’t take non-drastic measures such as kosher safety cellphones for kids, why should we take drastic measures like banning them from vehicles (which would also prevent them from getting to the hospital if needed)?June 23, 2017 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #1303129mw13Participant
I think we should just ban cars – way too dangerous. And faucets – kids can literally drown to death. Oh, and maybe sitting:

Other studies show that standing is as bad as sitting.June 23, 2017 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #1303135🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
it sounds like a joke but the point is you need to be informed and enlightened on what danger you are preventing and whether or not your prevention is actually useful or if it just makes you feel like you are doing something. It’s like a bunch of people making a campaign to prevent children from going outside with wet hair so that they won’t get pneumonia. They can pour millions into their campaign and get every person on board to comply. But at the end of the day, nobody ever got pneumonia from going outside with wet hair so it was all hype. If you REALLY care about protecting kids, find out what you can do that will actually matter.June 23, 2017 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1303140
Often preventing one type of danger works but introduces another. For example, if you take away monkey bars from a playground, the children might start running up the slides and standing on the swings.June 23, 2017 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #1303181adocsParticipant
If you ban kids from cars and make them walk, the slower travel will make them more susceptible to various diseases. You’ll be undoing decades of progress!!

When you campaign for something and its done, there is the law of unintended con sequences. Meaning there will be results that occured that you had’nt planned on
