C'mon Randy, you know better than that.  Most drivers don't know the  
rules of the road either, and take this exact approach.  And this is  
why so many people die every day in completely avoidable accidents.

We'd be a lot better off if the rules were enforced.  On the highway  
is logistically impossible.  Less so with DNS.
