Probably because most people ignore the "responsibility" part and focus on "personal".

Take mobile phone use when driving, or DUI: People who do it don't think about the effect on others just their own wants and needs. Coercion is required because personal responsibility isn't even considered.

Smoking is the same: my parents both smoked, and sometimes it was difficult to see out the window on the other side of the car due to the smoke level. To protect the children it's now illegal in many places - but you still see people doing it!

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
