Safe Driving Habits

Do you have safe driving habits that you want to share with other drivers? We lost 43,000 people in vehicular crashes last year. We have a 9/11 every month on our roads with nary a whimper. Many drivers speed, disobey lights & signs and behave in ways that promote accidents. We all need to re-examine our behind the wheel attitudes and re-establish America as the safest place to drive. We can start by communicating positive actions & habits within the MB community. What can you contribute?

It's the drivers who don't pay attention who are the risk. Safe driving has nothing to do with speed, and has everything to do with awareness of your surroundings at all times.

1) Put the motherfucking phone down and look around you BEFORE moving.
2) Do AT LEAST the speed limit, if not more.
3) Figure out exactly where you're going BEFORE you get there. See rule #2.
4) Get out of the fast lane unless you're passing EVERYONE, you cocksuckers.
5) Anyone hauling a trailer of any kind (including truckers) who gets into the fast lane should be castrated and/or killed. End of story. You're not fast enough to be there, and when you make me get on the brakes, you make me use more fuel to get up to speed again, and it's bad for the environment. Fuckwad.

Sorry, I was just on an interstate road trip, and I'm still a little hot about it.

I'm so skeert of driving I don't git behind the wheel until I'm half-down the Jack Daniels. Then I drive as fast as I can to get off the road quicker.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
