My really excellent $2 device to end car prangs

I'm sick of rational responses to road safety. Nobody listens. What we need is something dramatic, simple, cheap and effective.

Forget all this nonsense about primary and secondary safety and driver education and improved roads etc. This little wonder will stop all but the most foolhardy doing anything in the least unwise.

National legislation will require abolition of seat belts, and every car to have mounted on the centre of the steering wheel a six inch sharp spike pointed right at the centre of the driver's chest.

But what if I get hurt?

It's for other people, not me.

Just drive at 50km/h and you can't possibly get hurt...

Good point.

I'm sending my really excellent idea to the Minister for Transport and offering, as he's so sure of the benefits of 50km/h, to instal the device for free in his car if he'll drive it head on into another car with both doing 45km/h. He can even wear seat belts.

This is a win-win.

Either the bearded little gnome proves that that we're all wrong, or he dies for sure and we get a chance to have another drongo in the job who is forced to realise that 50km/h ain't a guaranteed lifesaver, even for transport ministers.
