When roads are private, this will be a non-issue. The owners will make the rules. Liability concerns and technology will keep the roads safe. The fact that the state has a monopoly on most roads today creates the problem you bring up... and once again has people discussing how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

Once we start voting according to their rules, it weakens us. Until we have freedom, we're going to have too many traffic fatalities, war casualties, etc. But we'll have them forever (or until politicians wipe out civilization) if we start caving in to their way of thinking.
