Toronto is a crazy, multicultural, fast-pacing city that never sleeps. And often you have to be aggressive to survive. But how often is too often? There are times when you really have to take your aggressiveness and stick it right between the driver's seat and that part of your body, right next to it. Snow and ice are long gone, but driving gets worse and worse by the day. So, Dear Aggressive and Impatient Driver, next time you reach for that button in the middle of your stirring wheel, you might consider the following
1. Driver might be new, or drive a new car, he / she is not used to
2. Driver might be experienced but not familiar with the road
3. Drivers after collisions tend to get fears and drive with extra care
4. Women with little children in a car tend to drive with extra care
5. Driver might be senior – yes, as you get older your reaction tends to get slower
6. Driver might be tired, or not feel well
7. Driver in front of you follows the speed limit and you are driving like a maniac! Just slow down
Do you know what a split second is? Yes, it is a period of time that passes between the street light change to green and frantic honking from the moron right behind you.
So, next time you reach for that middle button, please, also consider the following. Not sure what others do, but here is my plan – next time I hear your honk, I will take my foot of the gas pedal, let the car stop and just watch you drive yourself insane. Once you pass out with fury, I might consider calling 911.
