From adventures in the big city, 5 September:
One of my pet peeves on the road is tailgating. You could call this inattention at the wheel as well, but it’s really a case of Mr. Impatient getting a little too close, and not understanding the concept, “All vehicles need space.” Then before you know it, BAM!
I doubt that the streetcar here suffered much damage, and I personally couldn’t care less about the damage done to his truck; I just hate the inconvenience that one person can cause to hundreds of other people, through his carelessness and impatience. We passengers only felt a slight jostle and a loud noise on the streetcar when this happened, so luckily, no one was hurt, and the worst that came out of this was a bigger rush-hour headache.
