Last week I got a traffic ticket, and opted to do the ‘defensive driving course’ to save myself the insurance and license penalties. The course was the usual thing: most accidents are rear-end collisions, caused by people distracted by, for instance, talking on cell phones.
On the way home, I was stopped at an intersection when my car was severely rear-ended by a guy who was distracted by his ringing cell phone.
Bonus irony: I only have two payments left on my car.
