And after that, there is still only one person to blame.Until then, there is only one person to blame.
On this we'll probably disagree. There are definitely laws that restrict access because the cost of life was too high and therefore too costly for the city/county/state, and there are regulations that require permits as well as certain gear to be used for mountain climbing. Would a state park's regulations and penalties for not following said regulation be considered a law? Yosemite has a $5,000 fine for keeping food in a vehicle, and I know that national parks do have restrictions on which bear canisters can be used by backpackers. I would assume they also have restrictions, regulations, and fines with gear and where you can climb. I'd call that a mandate?Yeah, those are laws/mandates and I pretty much agree they should be there.
However, people still get hurt because they aren’t following these.
Perhaps if we make it "Super Duper illegal”, it’ll somehow stop people who don’t care about the law?
