Interesting Transportation Analogy

From the Hartford Courant:

Regarding an independent ethics authority to oversee members of Congress, some members are "pushing for an independent office that would monitor lobbyists, but their effort is facing strong opposition. Without such an office, said Joan Claybrook, president of Public Citizen, any bill is "insufficient because it focuses on disclosing corruption, rather than deterring it.

"That's like tallying the number of people killed in highway crashes instead of making safer vehicles," she said."
