I believe driving is a right.. since you should be able to go where you want, provided you don't infringe on people's land or rights. I believe that how you get there is none of the government's business, as long as no one is wreaking any havoc. Whether you want to get somewhere by motor vehicle or horse.. as long as it doesn't interfere with other people, you have a perfectly legal right to get there. I realize that laws are necessary to protect people from accidents and stuff, but that is my own ideal.
Wrong. Driving is a privilege that must be earned. To legally drive you have to own a car (title or registration, etc.), you have to have appropriate insurance, you have to pass the driving exam to be deemed competent to get behind the wheel for both the safety of yourself and others. If it was an inherent right then you might as well let anyone and everyone get behind the wheel even if they are not capable and maybe they can kill someone on the road, maybe it will be you or someone you love eh?
Hell,if driving is your right, then flying is my right. I think I will go commandeer a plane and ignore all FAA regulations and park right at O'Hare International.
By your logic, alcoholics could say they can drive home from the bar. After all, driving is their right.
Regarding people being able to go where you want? Absolutely. They have planes, trains, buses, taxis, bicycles, hell, even riding in someone else's car with them driving. The point is there are MANY other means of transportation besides you driving. You must abide by the law.
None of the government's business? Your absolutely right. Police should not patrol the roads looking for people who violate the law. You must abide by the law.
Yes, people have a right to get where they are going. They do not necessarily have an inherent right to any and all means of transit though.
