Blame wokeness. Back in the day, a head on accident between 2 cars @60 mph killed a horrendous percentage of passengers until finally someone said "enough" and mandated that cars become safer. Ralph Nader comes to mind but there were others.

I recall also that the mood was: I am a safe driver, it won't happen to me. That safe driver expired, too.
