Cops are taught to ask questions the right way to get info the suspect does not really want to give. Maybe this cop was good at it. 'You're &$#@*!^&% right I ordered the Code Red !!!!".

Your lack of understanding is something I hear frequently. They live with themselves because it doesn't bother them at all.

Reliable self-driving cars won't, because they will be too expensive to buy for the average person.

Why would they? The blog states something without backing it up. What damages the roads more in Portland, a Toyota Corolla, a guy on a Trek, or Mother Nature?

Groceries? Crops and farm animals are raised in the cities and suburbs? If not for those rural areas, the people in the cities would starve quickly. Your view of who is dependent on whom needs some...

Nope. Pass laws holding people criminally responsible for the results of their negligence, not matter what the mode of transportation the party that is not "at fault" in the collision is using.
