a bizarre sense of risk…

Politics comes up with strange seemingly stupid outcomes some times. For instance take these two things. Now I would have thought that deaths that do occur are a worse outcome that ones that do not. But here in NSW they do not think this way.

  1. When the government wanted to introduce random speed cameras, people were up in arms, even though speeding kills hundreds of people each year.
  2. The government banned laser pointers, something no other place has been so stupid as to do, even though the number of incidents can be counted on one hand and the number of deaths are zero

They have no sense of perspective.
