So drivers know that in the main, they can do what they like, and yet feel they don't have to take responsibility for their actions (as if compliance with the law actually mattered, there would have to be some enforcement)
Add in our culture that is increasingly risk averse (and poorly educated about understanding statistics) and there's very little hope of improvement
I agree with your sentiment but don't forget the KSI stats are but a fraction of what there were and the UK consistently ranks in the top 3 worldwide for road safety.
There is an argument (not one I subscribe to) that since we are relatively good, the police resources should focus on other things (terrorism, drugs etc).
