There's nothing in the world I love more than driving fast. That's why this TV commercial from New Zealand illustrates my worst nightmare.

Here's the scenario: You're driving on a public road at a high speed on a nice day, confident in your skills behind the wheel and your ability to avert a crisis if necessary. Then, suddenly, you make a mistake, or another driver does. Someone gets injured or even killed. Now cars aren't fun anymore.

The point of the ad is this: When you drive, leave some room for error. I think that's an idea we can all agree with.

Hat tip to Red John!
