In comparison

THE number of drunks staggering into the canals and rivers is infinitesimal in comparison to those staggering into the roads and getting killed.

Yet you do not hear of those left behind demanding the roads be fenced off, as they know it is the persons' own fault, so  It very rarely makes the news anymore.

So why must the canals and rivers be fenced off, when a drunk staggers in and drowns?  And such an outcry? It is not the situation that is to blame, it is the person getting in such a condition he doesn't know what he is doing.
