I find I have to be the most careful in parking lots. It's amazing how many people just cut across aisles and assume no one will be driving down one when they come barreling into it at an angle. (sigh). Then there's the guy I saw folding his laundry. Not at a stop sign, but will his car was moving. It's scary out there. And glad you are enjoying the book so far.

I take it you read my status last night? This is so true.
So I'm driving home from a doctors appointment with my 3 month old and almost 3 year old in the backseat. I drive a fairly new sport sedan (Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart). Since I live out in farm country now, I decide to take the backroads since most of the time it's faster and since my 3 year old can see the cows.
So this lady in an older minivan in not so great shape passes me in the oncoming traffic lane VERY aggressively. And I'm already going 80k/h (50m/h) on a 50k/h (30m/h) road with one lane each way. She proceeds to speed past me and drive aggressively up the road. Until she gets stuck behind a slow moving farm vehicle that's turning left. HA! Then she speeds off again, until the stop sign. And the next red light. And the next one and so on and so on. It was hilarious.
She didn't even get there any faster, she just wasted her gas and endangered many lives.
