Safety or risk mitigation should always be quantified.

About 40k - 50k people die every year in automobile collisions. We could mitigate most of that, but we don't, because we judge it not worthy.

The car companies judge it not worthy. It's like the people dying have any say in the matter.

We don't have legislation requiring cars to be safe enough to not kill 40k - 50k people a year. That's all of us together deciding it's not worthy.
