Impulsive drivers together with impulsive reactions, means for too much ego!

We’ve all seen them, probably some of us were like them at some point. But my goodness, the loud-thumping, exhaust-screaming car that flies by at such a high speed. I could only assume, (most of the time, it’s guys), he swerved in and out of traffic, to get the clear lane and, see ya! Most of the drivers like this, are mainly late teens or early 20’s, that have something to prove, oh the ego! Being at a red light and looking left, looking right to have a hypothetical race with the other car. And sometimes, it turns out to be a race, with just the rev of the engine, or the infamous nod.

Drivers, in situations like this, momentarily disregard traffic and not to mention their insurance rates would go up, and if it’s “daddy’s car”, well then, they’ll be in for it, if they crash. So much ego, and too much pride just fuel it. It’s a phase that so many guys go through and a few actually get passed it, but when I see an “older man” acting this way, I can only guess that he has no kids, no wife, no family to go home to because who, in their right mind, would drive erratically, with family? You’d be surprised, especially the retiree that’s driving his corvette and looking for some action…

If their is a special taskforce for this type of driving, then let me tell you, that is failing or failed. Every time, I get behind the wheel, it’s incredibly obnoxious and extremely likely, that I’ll see a race or two…Maybe these film producers, directors of all these car movies, should do a study, on how their influence kids just getting their licenses. Parents can only do so much, to educate their kids on being careful, but when movies of all the action-packed bullshit, that’s on the movie screen, parents don’t stand a chance. Young drivers want the feeling of the rush, they want their cars faster, and when I say faster, I mean Super-sonic, Nitrous driven cars that cost more than some houses. The days of subtle driving, cruise driven people is long gone…You have to be pretty crazy, to “hook up” a Buick Lacrosse, to the point, it doesn’t look like a Buick, but some futuristic piece of crap. Cars aren’t cars anymore, but travelling space shuttles at the speed of light. For those of us, that drive to get from A to B, I salute you, but for those of you, that love the “YO, YO, YO” and the sound of a Acura Integra screaming past you, because he honestly thinks, he’s going to beat a Yamaha, it’s time to grow up.
