when we as a Society wants to strip almost half of the issued driver license away from people that can't be responsible drivers. Then and only then do I think we can complain and take up your cause for E-bike responsibility.

"2018 Third Consecutive Year of at Least 40,000 Motor Vehicle Deaths"
"An estimated 4.5 million people were seriously injured in car crashes in 2018."

Let me know when E-bikes come close to those numbers. And I might just jump onto you hyperbole of old people on the way to Bingo on e-bikes are a danger
