With the current trend for knee jerk reactions fueled by political correctness, the frequency of the brake/acceleration is increasing to the point that rational thinkers have become travel sick, sick and tired.

We've seen the nanny state go from over protective to under protective, we've seen children suffer and die through under protection, and taken from decent parents through over protection. Whatever happened to common sense!
