Moving From Pennsylvania to Tampa has been a culture shock for me. In PA we had regular Auto Insurance and yearly vehicle inspection. Tampa have no fault Insurance, sometimes no Insurance and no vehicle inspection. These are all catalyst for creating Horrendous Driving conditions and Dangerous Drivers. Knowing that collecting Tickets and Wrecks your Insurance Carriers won’t drop you or raise your Premiums sky high so you could not afford to collect Tickets and Wrecks there is no Deterrent for mindless Driving. Watching the Morning News is an ongoing Soap Opera for me, each and every day there are horrendous wrecks. Driving to and from Work is a reoccurring Horror Movie.
Considering that I have been to Driving University, Driving Taxi in Manhattan at eighteen, taking defensive Driving courses, Driving Courier Service and Drove Commercially for many years. There is nothing that Tampa or Daytona Raceway can throw at me that would overwhelm me. But what of the new Driver or the Seniors who needs their mobility to get to the Doctor or shopping. I can not put it in any stronger Words they are all Maniacs Mindless Drones behind the wheel. Who told these Fools that they know how to drive, when many of them never went to Driving School and had a Professional instructor like I did at sixteen, who told me to always drive like I am the only one on the Road who knew what I was doing and to always know my surroundings, also to back off from the maniac on his way to Hell thinking his name is Mario or Dale.
The time and effort my Driving instructor invested in me is the Foundation for my Safe Driving Page at adixon7611.com the other components are watching your mindless approach to Driving. Back in PA while working as a Contract Employee I knew the Project Manager so I got a Friend a job. You would think that having two hungry kids would be incentive to develop responsibility. There was not one day that I pulled up in front of his House that he was outside waiting for me. Each and everyday we had an argument over my Driving, he complained that I Drive like an old Woman because I wouldn’t do sixty in a thirty MPH Zone. Eventually we both got fired for being late everyday.
Which brings us back to Responsibility, No fault and no vehicle inspection makes the Commute a living Hell with people who think it’s a crime to wake up a half an hour early. They wreck havoc an the traffic patterns Barreling through a slight opening, changing lanes with reckless abandon, staying in the left Lane until they are within fifty yards of their exit Ramp expecting everyone to let them in, thus Road Rage is a daily occurrence. In conclusion let me interject that it is only a Fool that does things the same way for twenty five years looking for different results.
