Thinking about the possible consequences of our actions is the root of personal and societal morality. If we dont like it, there’s a good chance that others wont like it either. The more we each choose to not hurt others in each moment, the fewer rules and restrictions we will need as a society, both communal and worldwide.
Most laws are in place because we don’t think of the possible consequences of our actions. Many people, especially younger drivers, don’t realize the delicate balance between driving carelessly and accidentally inflicting a life-changing traumatic incident onto an innocent stranger. The point is that speed limits are in place to prevent tragedy when people don’t think about the consequences of speeding.
