Staying Alert on Road Is About All We Can Do
J.D. Zumwalt's Jan. 2 column is "right on," as they say. Traffic laws are meaningless without a modicum of courtesy.
There are today too many "cowboys" drunk with power in the shape of their automobiles who try to force their own way to the front of the line.
It would be a good idea if the Motor Vehicle Division were to include a lesson on courtesy given to every licensed driver.
But it probably would not help because these all-for-me drivers would pay no attention.
Courtesy should be inherent, but it has a very low priority with many drivers. Thank you for calling attention to these misdeeds. I doubt it will do any good.
I believe most readers of The Pilot are thoughtful, courteous citizens who know the meaning of respect.
The discourteous ones use obscene gestures instead of words.
All one can do is be alert. Self-preservation requires it.
