Rosenfield brings us up to date on the battle. Perhaps we consumers have allowed the revolution to dwindle to a rebellion.
All the good citizens who drive carefully, carry enough insurance and sigh resignedly when the premium arrives need to remind lawmakers of some economic facts.

Second, law, medicine and insurance all get involved in accident fraud. Basically, this is the fault of consumers and a sign of our greedy times.
