Yes. If there is a reasonable alternative to me driving to work I'm open to it. I'm not aware of an alternative. There is a reasonable alternative to going outside.
Is it really worth getting killed over?
No. That is why I do everything I think reasonable to reduce the chance of me getting killed. I drive a large vehicle with top safety ratings. I keep it well maintained. I attend driver safety programs on a regular basis, and have attended driving schools. There is always a trade-off. Taking a chance on getting killed in a traffic accident is the price I pay to get my paycheck. I feel that is a worthwhile investment. Intentionally putting myself in danger and at a disadvantage for easily replacable and probably insured property doesn't strike me as a good investment. That's the difference, IMO.
