"America's Worst Driver"
Well, they beat me to "it"-- readers, viewers.
Someone in their misguided, headed to "Idiocracy" wisdom, has figured it would be a good idea to use the title, "America's Worst Driver" as a television show. It's probably been seen by... millions?
And this blog is slowly approaching 1000 readers.
Yes it does matter. In an arena such as safe driving, there is no room for sarcasm or glorifying the bad while young lives are being lost. That is why I will humbly keep the standard I write and think at, and hope someone will notice.
There is also a book that has made it to the New York Times Bestseller level, related to stories on traffic and driving worldwide. Its author runs a blog that, again, gives much press to mistakes, and not as much as could be to pro-active measures. And it runs to sarcasm for the sake of cleverness, which can lose sight of what is needed.
We need to create better drivers and be satisfied with a much higher standard. The reward will be better laws, including for example faster speed limits--legally, while keeping our freedoms. There is no doubt of this.
