Well...
Sorry if I misunderstood your intent, but as worded, it seemed that you were trying to downplay the virulence of the COVID virus.
In reply to "how do you avoid an entire population of infectious persons?" I said "You can't give it to your neighbour if either of you are indoors. It's not that infectious."

Open window, gust of wind, now the entire neighborhood has it.

Fairly simple for the first one when popping into a drive through for a caffeine fix one is not on a public highway so the rules about hand holding phones don't apply. A bit more hazy when paying at a toll booth on the M6Troll road.
(Also don't forget that consuming said caffeine fix while driving is an offence......)
Perhaps on your side of the pond, but not on this side of the pond, if it was meant for a car to drive upon, rules apply. One drink driver found out by operating a backhoe across a private car park at his employment and being charged with operating a MV while he was suspended.

Destroying the economy is not handling it well.


And killing off thousands is?
Nobody needs to be forced to catch the virus. We are all capable of taking our own precautions. Luckily the Scottish Election coming up has some parties that agree with me on every single policy!

You need food, water and air, how do you avoid an entire population of infectious persons? Oh, you prevent them from becoming infected in the first place!

I'll add how many guys in the pit get hit every year? I don't think the public would stand for a similar rate of pedestrians being hit on the public streets.

That is not age dependant.
So add a Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory to the driving test!

Age however is a good tool in general to judge maturity and used nearly universally in judicial contexts.
"Never trust a person over 30."
"President must be at least 35"

I might add the maturity to not do stupid things to show off and impress members of the opposite sex, to understand the true life long consequences of choices. It isn't all about being able to do it once, it is about the ability to do it every time no matter what distractions or pressures are applied by outside agents.

Almost reminds me of over here, but DMV here always took a photo. First paper license was actually a color print, even said Kodak on the back! Typewriter on paper extension card but you had to carry the photo one too. Got to the end of the extensions and they had me stand in line for another photo color print one. Forgotten exactly when but they said must come in and then it was a plastic card, but they kept the digital photo on file. Several replacements, same photo. Then out of the blue, you must come in because we want to do an eye test. Came in, forked over the fee, stand in this other line for a photo and we'll send it in the post. Never did the eye test. Most recent however had to get a "real ID." Scan and e-mail a couple of utility bills, birth certificate, SS card and fee. Well, they at least had you bring the paper copies so a human could look at them.

People and ice float. Then again if he hit play he might have more information ...
So 95% of him was in 0C water. That won't freeze him. 5% of him (not a lot) is damp and exposed to very cold air, too cold to cause evaporation. Where exactly is all that body heat moving to?
Then again if hit play he might have more information.
