Seems only right and fair.

I’d be surprised if some insurance company doesn’t step and underwrite the risk by creating pool.

I never thought it was fair for the taxpayer to get stuck with the bill for “rescues”.

Especially when it was due to someone’s stupidity. Like blindly follow directions from an idiot box when driving in the mountains and taking a ‘SHORT CUT’!

Argh!
