{{I can't think of anyone -- no matter how ill educated -- who would not worry about accidents even though someone would buy them a new car. That's just ridiculous on the face of it. Accidents can harm more than your car. They can take your life. Only a fool would not worry about them.}}

This is an irrational statement. I am extermely careful driving and parking because I do not want to accidentally ding someone or get a speeding ticket because I do nto want my rates for insurance to go up. If I knew that my actions would have no affect on me or the person I harmed while driving, I would be far less careful.

Well, that tells us a lot about your own character -- but I'm not sure that can be applied to the majority of people.
