What Really Counts...../sarcasm

The Governors' Highway Safety Association could be named "Your Mommies"...

Earlier this week the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety issued a relatively uncontroversial report saying that urban roads are safer than rural roads in terms of traffic fatalities, since urban roads generally have slower speeds and better access to hospitals.

Not according to The Mommies.

A better measure, they say, is whether states have enacted proven safety enhancements such as motorcycle helmet laws and primary seat belt laws, which allow police to stop motorists solely for being unbuckled. [...]

The confusion of 'process' for 'result'. Never surprising, always disappointing.

(Not to mention the moneys from fines and harassment opportunities!!!)
