Worse. We have this aversion to trying anything that's not pre-cleared. If some city planner were to build something out of spec with their big book, even though that big book is full of dangerous mistakes, they would be liable for any accidents.
Think about that for a minute. It's our litigious society that is keeping us using dangerous designs, because those dangerous designs have been approved.

I know of a (former) engineer who is being raked over the coals, because he didn't catch his renewal in time and didn't remove notice of him being an engineer from all his promotional materials by the time his license lapsed, all because he's VERY anti-status-quo. Google "Strong Towns" and visit their YouTube page.
