Among the things Humorist Dave Barry listed in “25 Things I Have Learned in 50 Years,” originally published in his book Dave Barry Turns 50, he wrote, “The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.”
While I suspect there is truth in that statement, I feel confident that we have all observed someone on the road to whom this certainly did not apply! They either drove like the rules of traffic didn’t apply to them, or they took unnecessary (or even unimaginable) risks just to get a little bit farther ahead. Perhaps you observe this on a daily basis! It seems so many drivers are willing to take risks that put themselves and others in harm’s way.
