Ahhh, but do you notice how many people DO stop at a stop sign?  Of course not.  The human brain is wired to notice exceptions, not the commonplace.  Then, of course, we apply the exception as if it is the rule.

Most people do abide by the rules, but who notices them?

Sounds like the first caveman after we came out of the trees, "grumble. . .don't know why we have to live in a cave, the trees were plenty good for our ancestors.  Changes. . whole world is going to the dogs, if you ask me. . ."

Thanks for claiming that I'm not honest.
