    You can't continue to legislate behavior and morality although they continue to try. The sad reality is, in life accidents happen, and you can pass all the laws you want but it's not going to change a thing. In our society's need to make life "perfect" we are strangulating ourselves with rules, regulations and laws that in the end do nothing but limit our freedoms. Yes, it is tragic, but DiBlasio's campaign "Vision Zero" is unrealistic and a bit arrogant if you ask me. Who does he think he is? Is he some kind of magic man that's going to make all crime and accidents disappear by passing a law? Ludicrous, if you ask me. This is simply a "feel good" law, nothing else. While every life lost is painful, the fact of the matter is that government can't bring anyone back, not can they prevent another death from happening. This would be based on the supposition that DiBlasio is God because in the end, that's the only entity that can give or take life. But then again, isn't that the agenda here? Our government is longing to be our sole provider. Our financial supporter, our father, mother, babysitter, supplier of food, school breakfasts, lunches, universal Pre-K - they're coming for your children. Beware.
