Ford Lincoln Mercury Sable? A personal conveyance named after its inventor, an
assassinated ruler, a character from Greco-Roman myth and a small furry mammal.

Driving with unlocked doors is a safety hazard. If you were to be hit, and the doors are unlocked, one or more could spring open. Then the person sitting next to the open door could be subject to further injury by outside objects.

A locked door will not spring open in most accidents, providing additional safety to the occupants.

Of course, this is why the government has to mandate safety standards and such, because sense ain't that common. The sheep have to be protected from themselves.

All the lock does is prevent the handle from working. Having the doors locked doesn't guarantee the door is still going to pop open. And in most cases, it won't.

The only "Door" on the car that has a "locking" latch would be the hood. In reality, the only reason the hood does this is to keep the hood from flying up should the driver neglect to seat it all the way down.
