Seat belts "work that good" either, for ever now and then someone wearing a seat belt is killed in a collision. Thus take them out of every car, void every law about wearing them, after all people die.

Take all the orange warning off the back of every buggy, every piece of farm equipment throughout the country, for according to you they are "don't work that good"

And let's take the safety off of every gun, for people also accidentally shoot themselves, they "don't work that well"

Although an unrelated story this might be a more inarguable example of "when Amish go bad."

Ohio Amish families cut hair, beards in feud

It just goes to show that laws against crashing into other vehicles don't work that good. Tsk, tsk. We really should repeal those not-very-good laws...

Now, back in the real world where, you know, logic applies, all your anecdote demonstrates is that orange triangles aren't fail-safe protections. But nothing is, and no one ever claimed that orange triangle are any such thing.
