Well, can't you see that these hopeless fools are not just unconcerned with your safety but their own as well. Cars constructed with quiet steel and
other insulating tricks, government safety standards met by belt restraints and multiple airbags to cushion the impact if someone gets in their way.
Mandatory insurance policies that absolve the guilty party from having to answer for their irresponsible acts. Throw in all of the other distractions
that are standard equipment on even subcompacts and sports cars and the end result is an environment and mindset that would best be not taken out on
the roads. If you want to listen to music, watch TV, eat, drink, apply makeup, change your baby's diaper, talk or text on the phone and so on, don't
drive. When you are behind the wheel of your car you are suppose to be aware of what is going on around you, let others know what your intentions are
by signaling, and know the rules of the road and practice them. Before you can avoid accidents you have to avoid distractions in your car. I think the
golden era of the automobile was over when people were aware that a crash could kill them and cost a lot of money that they didn't have. Back when
the mechanical and wind noises told them how fast they were going and cars didn't have cup holders and video monitors.
