Why are road safety volunteers having so little effect?
Every nation gets the government it deserves
(Joseph-Marie, comte de Maistre; 1753 – 1821).

or in the original French:
Toute nation a le gouvernement qu'elle mérite.

The implication is that if people are willing to tolerate a second or third rate local or national government or police force, that is what they will get.

So if our local and national governments and police forces are failing to provide a safe road system, resulting in children and other vulnerable people being harmed, then as well as blaming the guilty politicians, officials, and police, we should blame ourselves for being willing to tolerate it.
