Yes there is absolutely. This is a problem I have with leftists such as progressives, socialists and fascist big-govt liberals. They often compare these two with government doing them as if it's the same thing. Govt is a monopoly, and it's not like one has a choice to go somewhere else who will make the customer experience more satisfying including safety measures. These things can be used in ads including bragging about their safety record.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
