Convoluted laws contributed to bus crash
The article “Crash reveals gap in system” (Nov. 6) explains the whole problem with so many of our laws and regulation today. It says “Despite a labyrinth of laws and regulations aimed at ensuring the safe transport...” Therein lies the problem.
Our state and country have such a labyrinthine network of laws and regulations that they are nearly impossible to figure out. Whether it’s this law, laws involving uninsured motorists, laws involving determining the legal size of a pocket knife or laws involving possession of guns, just to name a few, no one knows exactly what should be done, when to do it and whom it applies to.
The result is a tragedy such as the bus crash last week. It isn’t simply dropping the ball. It’s not knowing what to do with it when you have it.
