Mature Driving?April 21, 2010 | in Helping You Drive Safely
As I was driving to work this morning, I heard that people in Vegas are paying $100 to sky jump off the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. Now, in my book, jumping off the side of a building is typically not a good idea. Certainly, there are some people out there that need a thrill.
All I need to do for a thrill or to yell and scream and go crazy, is to drive my hour commute in Houston every morning. Talk about distracted driving…today there was a guy driving a brand new Charger behind me on the tollway. That wasn’t a big deal until I realized he had no business driving at all. He was rushing up behind everyone, tail-gating and revving his engine as to alert people he was more important and needed EVERYONE to get out of his way. So I didn’t – the driver next to me didn’t either. That made me pretty happy. Since I work at a driving safety school, I didn’t allow him to mess with my morning driver programs that spin in my head. After several minutes of pulling up as fast as he could on every vehicle in front of him and revving that obnoxious engine, he finally exited the tollway.
I wished that I had time to follow him and see just exactly what he does for a living. That would have been my thrill for the day. He must have been on a secret mission for the CIA. What a tool! To all of you that need your thrill by jumping off an 800 ft building in Vegas, save your $100 and spend $7 to come and drive on Houston toll roads. Excitement at it’s best!
