Now lets have a 10,000 people do this same thing and chances are very good that many stories of tripping, banging,dodging and so on would come to light. We have so many engineered devices in our lives today that there is guaranteed to be mis-haps and accidents. I don't believe that it is people taking these things lightly but more of an understanding that we can't foresee them all nor prevent the lot of them. I'm sure that a study can be produced to show that more tire blowouts have caused accidents than a fail steering mechanism but day after day we still take our chances.
