  • I hate driving in traffic. People, as a group, cannot drive very well. I find driving in traffic to be one of the major points of stress in my life.

    Slower traffic, keep right.
    Please, use your turn signal.
    Merge is not a foreign word meaning "give up".
    Yellow lights do not mean "floor it".
    Read the signs - they will actually help you be in the correct lane when it's time to make a decision as to which way to go.
    YIELD to emergency vehicles - seriously - what if it were your loved one counting on that ambulance or fire truck or police car that cannot get through? MOVE OVER!
    Leave appropriate following distance between yourself and the car in front of you.

    The things I see people do cause me to be constantly amazed that the number of traffic fatalities in Tennessee is not more than the reported 68 YTD.

    Not everyone is a good driver. Driving is a skill and, for some, a talent. We must constantly strive to be better drivers, but it seems the longer some people drive the more careless they become. Lazy and undisciplined. Let's focus on being better, safer drivers instead of trying to feed the kids, put on makeup/shave, talk to anyone on the phone, text, post to Facebook, Tweet, change clothes, look for something in the back floorboard, read the newspaper, or do a crossword.

    Please drive safely.
