My nephew just got his license. I don't know everything about how he specifically was raised, but the general "don't leave my sight until you're 16 at which point here's your 2 ton death machine" phenomenon is very weird to me. A lot of people die because of cars. Unlike guns, cars have useful purposes other than killing people (yes, some people hunt, some people shoot targets, most gun owners don't), but there's still a weird acceptance of the amount of carnage.
