Driving Me To Drink


I drive a fair bit to work and back each day, and almost every day I see something that makes my toes curl.

As you know, "familiarity breeds contempt" - but a car is a BIG thing. Even a small car can weigh a couple of tons.

They can also move quickly and that means a lot of kinetic energy, which can cause grief, destruction and anguish when dissipated quickly in a crash.

Although cars are designed to be comfortable, remember you are NOT sitting in your living room or kitchen - don't get too cozy or distracted.

Realize that you are not sitting in a chair with the outside whizzing by - you are whizzing along, and you are supposed to be in control.

Until we are all riding in self-drive cars - take the job seriously, please.
