So you know that moment during the holiday season when people just, snap? When the already tenuous chord connecting the American consumer to reality severs, and people plummet into blind amok?
Apparently that moment happened the other day– at least, if drivers are a good indicator. It wasn’t even Thankgiving yet, and people were driving on the wrong side of the road, double parking on busy streets, and honking at pedestrians in walkways. I understand that in some places this is normal, but not in my hometown. At least not this early in the year.
In all this craziness, there’s an increased risk to drivers. But the risk to runners skyrockets. It’s not a hazard that many people consider– anyone running around a shopping center could tell you that.
What I mean to say is that the grill of a Nissan Murano is not my ideal resting place. So please, when you’re out driving, take into account those who travel on foot.
P.S. (sorry about the unfinished state of the earlier post. It would seem that I hit the wrong button when I tried to save my draft).Share on Facebook
