I don't think because some people don't obey laws that's a good reasons for not having them.
In a free society, there is never a good reason for having a law. Laws are a necessary evil to place checks on certain behaviors deemed offensive or harmful by society.

Passing laws to fix a virtually nonexistent problem might feel like a good idea, but the net effect is a loss of liberty to folks who didn't need the law to be responsible in the first place.
