In sensible societies, finite risk mitigation resources are allocated on the basis of objective risk and cost benefit analyses
Perhaps we once had a sensible society Clinton, did an aviation safety course where it was explained that the need (cost) to introduce a life preserving mod would be balanced against the predicted number of lives it may save. If it were otherwise we wouldn't have vehicles driving head on at a closing speed of between 200 and 260 kph and separated in their passing by a couple of feet.
