Whenever I discuss this column with people I end up telling them that I never run out of topics to write about. All I have to do is go for a drive and keep my eyes open. Someone will do something noteworthy and I'll have the next column idea.
Today was no exception. My co-worker and I overtook a company truck that was wandering and then being jerked back into proper lane position. We passed by in the left lane and found that the driver had a road map unfolded on his steering wheel and he was trying to find his way with it and drive at the same time.
With all the current talk about distracted driving, how could this person decide to do this? Surely he knows that you either devote your attention to the map from a parked position or you drive, not both! He's a bad advertisement and a liability for his company too.
Enough negativity! I need a column that is positive and upbeat for a change. Do you know someone or something positive about driving today? Please let me know so that I can write about it next week. Reference Links
