It's not the TOOL, its the OPERATOR.

If your brother has an anxiety attack because someone cuts him off on the freeway he probably shouldn't be driving (in my opinion). Think of the worry wort kind of women who freak out when the car ten people ahead of them puts on their turn signal...those people shouldn't drive either.....

I am all for personal responsibility, when you can handle it.
Agreed.

There are a lot of people that shouldn't be driving, period. It's just the slippery slope of government control scares me. I don't really want the government determining my level of personal responsibility of what I can and can't do. If we nitpicked every little thing as a reason for someone not being allowed to do something, eventually that list could easily include things that would affect us all.
