This is a special blog from our correspondent “Sid” and he is just “Dishin’ it out!”
Okay, what’s the deal? Why has everyone gone out and gotten in a great big hurry? Drivers that tail you, not giving enough space, speeding around you just to get in front of you by one car, pulling out in front of you when there is clearly no traffic behind you….Crazy driving. That’s my beef!
There ain’t no need to endanger your life or the life of others just to get one car ahead. It’s bad enough we gotta text and talk on the phone (dangerous enough – and yes I am guilty of talking on the phone – not texting, though!) while we drive, but then we gotta get in front.
Look, I can be a speed demon on the road and I am no better than you. But I have to watch out for the other drivers also. They too have families and loved ones. I could be a race car driver, not because I like to go fast, but I watch patterns in traffic, the speed of other drivers, the way others maneuver through traffic….All things necessary to be a good driver.
I watch cars drive right up on your butt, not paying attention to the fact that you have cars on either side and in front and then they want you to pull over and let them pass….crazy arse drivers. They are driving like maniacs – all to get one car ahead….crazy arse drivers. Oh, I already said that!
Here are my suggestions…
- Pay attention to all cars in all lanes, especially if you are in a fast lane mode;
- Respect the fast lane if you want others to respect it for you;
- Don’t make phones while driving;
- Don’t text while driving;
- Try not to zigzag through traffic;
- Keep an eye on what is going on with the vehicles in front of you;
- Give yourself an opportunity to adjust to traffic, not react to it;
- Use your blinker;
- Adjust your rear-view mirrors; and
- Don’t drive with a chip on your shoulder!!!
You will be the better driver if you put on some lovemaking music rather than war tunes – I promise! Look, we all have places to go and people to see and sometimes we run late – I get it – You are moreimportant than me, but do not risk all of our lives cuz you think you are more important and we should bow to you. The road is ours, not yours.
And yes, I got the memo – It is all bout you! But guess what? I filed that memo in my round file…so there.
Please be cool this Fourth of July. Arrive alive, Don’t Drink and Drive! There is no law against getting wasted and letting someone else drive, just don’t get wasted and drive…call a cab – it is worth it in the end. Trust me, I know! Get a designated driver.
As far as driving like an arse – is it really worth it? I think not.
I’m just saying!
I am Sid and I am just Dishin’ it out!
