Traffic and cars aren’t killing people, people are

It as been many years since I learned the skills of driving a car and earned my drivers license. Nowadays, new drivers go though a lot more on road training before they can earn their drivers license.

More training, yet I see an increase of careless and negligent drivers on the road. When new drivers pass their drivers test and pull away from the DMV, it seems they just throw out the window all they have learned.

There are only two types of drivers — skilled conforming drivers and nonconforming hazardous drivers. There is no in between.

Poor driving techniques are rampant. Basic tasks like stopping at a stop sign, signaling a turn, turning a corner, following too close, cell phone use while driving, ignoring speed limits, are practices being scuttled by drivers.
