Nature of Rules and Prohibitions
There seems at times to be confusion about the nature of warnings and restrictions among the young. Restrictions are not generally put immediately before the danger, but rather at a safe distance from it. A good analogy is: You don't put the first warning of a bridge being out next to the hole in the bridge. Such a warning is of no use to someone going 60 miles an hour. The warnings are put miles ahead so drivers can take alternate routes. Along the way, more warnings are posted and barricades are put up in front of the bridge itself.

Restrictions on behavior operate in much the same way. Behavior is restricted not because it is the danger, but rather it is often the road to danger. This is why you can engage in restricted behavior and NOT have anything bad happen. Like that road, however, the longer you stay speeding down that route, the more likely you will be to find the bridge that is out. And by then it is too late.

A critical review of most disasters that occur despite the warning signs and barricades often reveals that the person purposely ignored the warnings and actively bypassed the barricades. With such willful and sustained activity, it is difficult to credibly call the resulting crisis an "accident."

And that is exactly what high risk behavior is. It is fun, self-gratifying and gives the illusion of power and freedom until things go wrong.
