“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— / I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference.” How refreshing it is to quote freely from another iconic Robert Frost poem, “The Road Not Taken,” published in his poetry collection Mountain Interval in 1916. Its copyright expired in 1992 and that has made all the difference. The poem has inspired lyrics from Bruce Hornsby, Melissa Etheridge and George Strait, and its phrases have been used to sell cars, careers, computers and countless dorm room posters that feature the final lines as an exhortation to individualism that the poet likely never intended.

The only examples I can remember that had the desired effect were in 1965 (approx) when a limit was introduced on how much you can drink before driving, in 1983 when it became compulsory to wear seatbelts, and in 2007 when it became illegal to smoke inside many buildings. .
