think about those folks 'out there' who use drugs?
And, also, about those
using alcohol in excess and getting stoned outta
their minds while under the influence? They get
from place to place, in their cars!!! Think about
it for just one pea-pickin' minute. They are on the
roads where WE TRAVEL and are surrounding us while
we're behind our steering wheels! If this
ain't frightening, nothin' is!
Drive defensively? You bet'chur a** I do!!! My golfin' buddy, and best friend, makes fun
of me for looking in my rearview mirror and out my
side view mirrors all the time. I've driven with
him and his habits, towards observing other cars
and drivers, leave much to be desired. But, as I

as a survivor!)
While waiting at a stop light you'd best keep your
eyes movin' all over the place. Glancing
at both side view mirrors and in your rearview is
HIGHLY, (and I mean HIGHLY) recommended, so

can be noticed before he rams into your rear
end! As to looking straight ahead, while setting
there at the light doing nothin', an occasional
is all you need in that direction.
For any of you who've witnessed or participated
in a 'rear-end,' you know what
I'm talking about.
I chuckle while observing some schmuck who's
staring straight ahead while tightly clutching his
steering wheel. He thinks he hasn't a care in the
world and, as I go whizzing by, hasn't the
foggiest notion whether or not I'm sober or on
drugs or in command of any of my driving skills.

him, see very little relating to safe driving.
indeed, an unwilling recipient of that accident
which is just around his 'corner.'
So, to all you "superior" drivers out there, when
you catch yourselves staring straight ahead
and blocking out everything behind and around you,
know that the law of averages is fast approaching
and I hope you won't be hurt too badly when the
schlazen hits your fan!!!
