That awkward moment you realize that due to numerous advances in automobile technology, some people have little to no comprehension of the fact that they are solely responsible for safely directing a few thousand pounds of metal and combustible compounds — at high speeds — down congested routes where they rely on others to do the same.
If you think all those people on the roads around you should pay attention, so as not to accidentally cause you harm, perhaps it’s best you do the same.
Not some of the time. Not most of the time. All of the time. Because even when you’re being careful 100% of the time, you have to watch out for the idiot who isn’t.
It’s not a magic box with wheels. It’s a death machine with a glossy coat of paint.
Put your phone away and pay attention.
Encourage others to do the same.
It can wait.
*I just saw a several car accident this morning. It was bad.
