Privilege and even if you don't drive, you still benefit from the roads. Your computer didn't walk to the store you bought it. You can still take a bus...

Privilege. But the government seems to allow people without the talent to drive to drive in front of me all the time.

Cars are a DEADLY WEAPON, that makes driving a privilege. Roads are funded by those who DRIVE on them through gas taxes. People who ride bikes shouldn't be allowed on roads or should have to pay registration and other fees by your logic. They should also add a tax to shoes for sidewalks.

Depends on your point of view and position: for citizens in most underdeveloped countries, it may seem a privilege for few, for those in the developed parts of the world it has become the long-conquered right often thought of as a form of individual freedom. Governments normally don't have "private parts", they manage public infrastructure (roads etc). We travel using cars, but also public transit, bikes etc. What do you mean by "no legislation on licenses..." - that would mean getting back into the 19th century and letting any maniac or incompetent get behind the wheel - as is, there are too many out there...
