Yes, he has.

When he was a kid, he was seriously injured and in a coma after running
into the road in front of an oncoming car to "rescue" the corpse of a
dead bird.

His pig-headed unwillingness to accept any possible fallibility on his
own part is what's led to him extrapolating that incident into "all car
drivers are evil murderers"

What effect, other than a possible increase in injuries sustained by
people bearing red flags, would be caused by a return of the Road
Locomotive Act?

It should certainly cause a considerable decline in youth unemployment.

What is the correlation coefficient of the rate of road fatalities and
global climate data?
