Just Me?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a report this week and it’s not good. Despite the pandemic and fewer cars on the road, accidents and fatalities are up. I won’t go into the gory details, only that the report blames the increase on drivers taking more risks.

For example, I know I’m not the only one that pulls up to a red light, glances to the left to see a line of cars, and guns it into a right turn. I can’t be the only one that looks back in my rearview at all those cars sitting back and pretends that the cars are all coming to get me. Bad guys. That I have a head start on a daring escape. Then I floor it and scream out my window, you’ll never take me alive! And I see the light change and they’re coming, they’re coming to get me. But I’m not gonna let ’em catch me no, not gonna let ’em catch the Midnight Rider…

Or maybe it is just me. Either way, based on the National Highway Report, we all need to drive a little safer, which I assume includes imaginary chases.
