And thus the ultimate failure of the "libertarian" arguements against regulation of any sort:

Individual rights do not extend to behaviors that put others at physical risk because that behavior in and of itself begins to infringe on my rights...in this case my right to life.

You don't just get to do what you want, when you want, because you want...that isn't freedom, that is anarchy. As a society, we abandoned anarchy 5000 years ago in exchange for common laws governing socialized behavior. Without said common social laws, society could not function and would degrade into a "might makes right" world where those with power do whatever to whomever, whenever.

Since the days of the trade guilds of 14th century Europe, we have agreed that certain skills within our society are specialized and require apprenticeship or training. We have carried forward with that concept and now expect that certification of skills are a prerequisite to certain activities (in-public), such as practicing medicine, law, flying an airplane, or piloting a motor vehicle on (public) roads.

If you don't want to play by society's rules, you are perfectly free to build your own road and exercise your "right" to drive without certification. Until then, if you are using "our" public roads, I believe a certification of ability is the least you can offer.

Thanks.
