With traffic what it is today, you really have to watch where you are going.
I could be confident about my driving, but obviously I cannot answer for the other maniacs on the road. Every day, we read or hear about rash drivers, road rage and deaths from road accidents. Worse still are the injured ones who are disabled for life, usually through no fault of theirs.
So where does that take us? Road rules do rule. They are there for specific reasons, solid ones. This applies to everyone on wheels – cyclists, motorists, everyone. It is always far better to arrive a couple of minutes late – in one piece – rather than NOT.
It is important to be patient on the road and not take chances. 🙂 It is easy enough to assume that the rest of the drivers are total idiots and will do stupid things – and be careful accordingly. A fender bender can really get on the nerves and drive you crazy literally – but a major accident can change your life.
Or someone else’s. Forever.
Or just end it.
Death is final.
