Aside from the issue of getting sued, which some people don't care about because they have no assets, there is the issue of taking responsibility for your own actions. You need to have the ability to recompense others for their damages due to your own mistakes or mishaps. To not be able to do so is irresponsible and implies that you just don't give a d*mn about the other guy.
