March 1, 2003

While driving home from work on a two-lane road one dark night last week, it suddenly occurred to me that I was taking for granted, without any thought or apprehension, the fact that the drivers of the oncoming cars were paying attention to their driving and not impaired in any way. Of course, once I started to think about the potential problems of inattentiveness or possible impairment of the older drivers, I immediately began recalling the numerous accounts on television and in the newspaper of horrific automobile accidents resulting in extensive injuries and sometimes even death.
