I am not the driver of the month; I am the poor soul trying to figure out what the guy that doesn't have any idea what speed he is driving for a mile or two is doing and trying to compensate. Not being ugly; not perfect; just apparently more observant than some drivers. All drivers should treat driving as what it is; a very serious and dangerous occupation when you are driving; not a living room conversation, not a dining room experience, not a chance to "catch up" while you while away the hours traveling. Sorry, it's serious business to me and I'm sorry some think it's a good way "kill time" while carrying on, eating, drinking or having a brew....Not here. I think we've probably beat this up and I've pretty much pointed out my view about those that have no idea how fast they drive (inattention) so we can probably move on to the next topic.

Edit: and yes, folks need to understand the ramifications of their actions - the blood, guts and gore. It IS real life and the consequences for inattention.

I think everyone can agree that speed does kill. I think another point of concurrence is that driver distractions greatly increases the risk of a traffic accident and/or fatality. Minimize both and we'll all be safer on North American roads (gotta include our northern brothers and sisters).

It is ironic (and probably true) that even though technology is the root of many traffic incidences, injuries, and deaths, it will ultimately be the tool to minimize what it created. Self driving tech is in its infancy and will be mainstream in all commercial and passenger vehicles in the next 20 to 30 years. Can't wait to the day that my commute is about as risky to my wellbeing as brushing my teeth. Motorists just have to deal with all the knuckleheads in the mean time.
