Maybe it’s just me, but I found this commercial to be pretty damn funny. We’ve all been there, and if we’re lucky we had some advanced warning (though probably not as clear as the video below depicts). I don’t know about you, but when I see a driver doing 55 in a 70, blindly texting away, I get the hell away from them, quickly. I know he’s going to hit someone or something eventually, so I see it as my obligation to take myself and my car off his intended-victim list. I’d rather explain to a state trooper why I was driving at 85 in a 70, instead of having a trooper explain to my wife that I won’t be coming home. Ever.
Drivers in Jacksonville are so bad that I’m actually thinking about adding a freight train air horn and compressor system to every vehicle I own, supplemented by a few hundred-thousand candlepower driving lights. Sure it’s illegal and sure it’ll piss off other motorists, but it may just help to get my point across. I won’t be buying a Lexus anytime soon, so I’ve got to do all I can to increase my chances of survival on the roads.
