If a product was released today that had the fatality rate of the car, would it continue to be sold, or would it get pulled from the shelves.
It seems we are constantly stopping companies from releasing products due to safety concerns. This is done for the safety of the public usually.
Recently, I had to hire a mechanical post hole digger to dig 10 holes in my backyard for landscaping purposes. My Dad said they weren't safe and that he had heard terrible stories of people getting caught up in the auger (corkscrew). I replied with "how many people get killed everyday driving, but you don't stop driving". He didn't quite see my point, but he understood what I meant.
If cars are so dangerous, why are they still being sold?
