Which is the bigger problem?
I don't believe I've read anything from the San Francisco Chronicle's, Debra Saunders, in a while. She has a column in the Chron today about San Francisco allowing unlicensed and uninsured drivers to keep their cars. Seems a lot of them are illegal immigrants that can't legally get a driver's license.
I had to wonder, though, about a statistic she brought up: 20 percent of fatal car crashes involved one or more unlicensed or improperly licensed drivers.
What isn't mentioned is that 80% of the fatal crashes seem to have involved properly licensed and insured drivers. That's four times as many as caused by the unlicensed drivers. Shouldn't we be trying to get the properly insured drivers off the road instead? They seem to be causing most of the accidents.
