Realy? Just Old People

 I was hanging out at one of the local game stores.  There was group of teens at one of the tables discussing driving.  The topic of the elderly came up, how bad old people are at driving etc.....  Then one of the more vocal teens said something interesting.

He texts while he drives.  I mentioned how dangerous that is.  He countered that he's never been in a accident yet, and keeps an eye out for the police so he doesn't get into trouble.  I asked him if he keeps an eye for trees.  No response.

It's not necessarily, age, gender, race that makes a bad driver.  It is measured by the way in which they are raised, and the level of stupidity that they exhibit.  This kid exhibited both of these qualities, dumping and generalizing a large section of society, while at the same time proudly touting his own dangerous driving habits.

I wish him luck.  Texting while driving is similar to any dangerous or illegal activity.  The more often you do it, the more likely you will face the consequences.  I just hope he walks that path alone, and doesn't drag anyone else down with him.
