We’ve been on both ends of the bumper debate.

While not a fan of the pushing and shoving either, it is those once in 3 or 4 races accidents that the bumpers are designed to help.  It is better for the racer’s hide/bones/noggin in the long run.

When I look back now on the bumperless karts,I think of days when men were men.

But hindsight tells me that a bumper would have been a good idea then too, just no one made you use it.

There is a limit.  Have we reached the point where more would be better?  Can we plan for every possible accident/ failure/lapse in judgement?  Doubtful
