There's a lovely gentleman who lives in my neighborhood who I see driving to the market occasionally. I'd guess he's in his late 80's or early 90's. I can tell you with certainty that his old car does not require an airbag for him as he drives at a velocity slower than I can walk. Now, we might commend him on his safety record. However, his *driving skills* are not exactly being demonstrated, tested, or improved in any significant way whatsoever...
Keith. I see your point. Has he not decided to do so himself? He is the driver of the car. He is responsible for his ability and choice. He is exercising that choice according to you with good effect.

The same principles involved are there for those who want to drive fast. They are responsible, not the car, not the windows, not any part of it. They cause any accident not the car for it only does what you cause it to do.

Once again it's all down to the person, nothing else.
