Slow Down!

Have you ever noticed how some drivers are in such a hurry they ride your bumper, decide you are driving too slowly for them so they punch the gas and fly around you? They will do this even though they can see the next light is either red or changing to red. So they arrived at the light about 2 seconds ahead of you. It happened to me twice today.

I don’t drive that slowly to be honest. What I do is pay attention to the stop lights ahead. If I see they are going to change after I take off from one light, I don’t waste my gas. When you drive an SUV, you use more gas at takeoff than at any other time in your driving. I am trying to do what I can to save a little cash. It isn’t much, but it is what it is.

I also have a problem with speeding through life. How do you take in what’s around you if you are constantly trying to get more speed? Enjoy life! Jeez! What do you think you are missing when you don’t look? Trust me you could be missing the most important thing in your life with that approach. Slow down! Really!
