Are people this fucking stupid?

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - U.S. auto safety regulators introduced a rule Monday requiring automakers to install safer power window switches in all models within five years in a move to prevent injuries to children.
It's bad enough that the back window of my SUV, (Yes I drive a gas guzzling SUV and fucking proud of it.) doesn't go all the way down but now we need a law to what? stop it from going up? I just don't get it
"This regulation will prevent the tragedy of a child's head or limb being caught in a power window," said NHTSA administrator Jeffery Runge in a statement.
Look if your kid is too stupid to move his head out of the way of a window going up, well maybe he is not the pick of the litter and you're probally better off without them, because it just gets worse. It starts with the head in the window thing, then moves to the fork in the toaster then the paperclip in the light socket.
Current presidential candidate and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has said that power windows pose a threat to kids because they were "callously designed to thrust upward with cruel force,"

You can not have a story involving automobiles not be followed with the words, "Ralph Nader."
"Callously designed", this dude has lost his marbles, all of them, maybe while he was testing a corvair his head got stuck in the window, because opening the window is "Unsafe at any speed."

Read CNN/Money.
Waste $45.99 to buy his book used from Amazon, and hopefully kick your self in the ass.
