The sooner we get mandatory speed limiters and, even better, effective autonomous vehicles, the better. Meantime, lifetime bans for reckless or death by, as well as confiscating their cars, would be a start.

Agreed. There needs to be a degree of social unacceptability (unacceptable-ness?) about cars generally and performance cars in particular. My next car will certainly ve heading towards @Drago 's Smart. The current box, while not in any sense a performance car, is a loooong way from a Smart.

Same argument with the gun lobby in the US.
Not really. One is designed purely to shoot animals and people, the other is a means of transport but has an undesirable alternate capability in the wrong hands.

The two arguments are not the same and by trying to liken them to each other you are weakening both arguments.
