The following is what I think about highway safety:
- Cruising in the left lane for a period of time may disrupt traffic flow and anger other drivers, even though you are obeying the speed limit.
- Control yourself and your emotions while driving, even if another driver is carelessly driving, because some people become powerful and invincible when they get into the driver seat of their powerful machine.
- Do not engage in hand gestures for verbal disagreements. Do not pull over and exit your vehicle to confront another driver.
- A good and funny video from the archives of Walt Disney, titled “Dangerous Driving,” would be a good clip to show — whenever and wherever the Division of Motor Vehicles could show it — to remind all of us of our driving tendencies.
