Questions I Ask

(Before It's News)

After a horrific deadly crash, there’s concern that school bus drivers could be on the road with kids in a bus while the MVA is processing a license downgrade or suspension, and there’s no process to alert the driver’s employer or the school system.

The question I, as a libertarian, ask:  Could a private organization solve this problem more effectively than a government organization?

I think the answer might be ‘yes’.  Private certification, requiring the driver provide contact information for their employer, notification processes, and more stringent certification processes, could all happen, and be more effective.  With an added bonus – accountability.  I certainly expect the driver’s estate and his employer will face lawsuits, but the MVA won’t.  A private certification organization charged with this responsibility would also be accountable (making it perhaps more likely they get it right, because they have a profit motive.)

I doubt anyone will ask the question, though.  Instead the question will be ‘what law or regulation can we pass that would prevent this’, even though existing regulations should have.  No one will consider that government isn’t the solution.
