    I never said that, there are many preventative measures you can take to ensure your 12V battery isn't going die without having to leave the driveway, which - as I said earlier in this thread - I am already doing.

    I'm just describing how things are in my country. If I was stopped by the police and found to be far from home without good reason (charging the 12V battery is certainly not good enough), I will be sent home, and can be prosecuted. Not worth it.

    Ultimately, nothing will save your life or mine. We will ALL die. If not dying is the ultimate goal in life, we're all gonna be very disappointed. Not dying prematurely is a good reason to fasten your seatbelt, but not good enough to be a prisoner in my own home when reasonable precautions are so highly effective. At the end of the day, practically everyone will get this virus just like all the head colds and other flues. The vast majority will survive and develop ways of fighting it off.

    I wouldn't go for a drive just to charge my battery either if I could just plug in a charger. Waste of time and money. But I would do go out to earn a living, buy what I need, and just generally get out of the house for sanity's sake. Anyone remember sanity? I wonder where it went.

    You're kidding me? That's the prize? :ROFLMAO::cry::ROFLMAO::cry:

    Still, knowing that is oddly liberating: threaten me with death? Tell me something I don't know.
