Aggressive Drivers

Grrrr. I hate driving. I cannot abide some of these folks who are intent on "gapping" their way to the front of an endless line of vehicles. Mainly I dislike it when my own little "space" between myself and the car in front of me gets violated. But in the overall picture there is not much gain for all the risk of driving aggressively. In the respect of time saved that is. A matter of a minute or two total is saved in most routine trips a person would take on average. I know this from experience since I used to drive aggressively when I was younger. Also, I find that I still sometimes do it when I feel pressed for time. I will grab somebody else's gap just to get a little closer to that light coming up. Knowing full well that it won't really get me much more than a second or so for each gap I successfully navigate. Why bother? Just another way to be hypocritical I suppose.

So now I teach myself patience. I make sure that I leave in plenty of time to arrive at my destination without having to drive at a frenzied pace. And when I am running late from time to time I just accept the fact that I will be late and go with the flow rather than trying to outrun it.

It never bothers me much when I am a passenger though. I have a friend who is the most aggressive driver in these parts. He is an expert at gapping. Yet I am blissfully at peace since I don't have to stress over the dang road.

Here's the keys, I am just along for the ride!
