Being a careless or bad driver isn’t something that should be taken lightly. It’s irresponsible and dangerous we should all strive to be better. Because until all the cars become autonomous, this is what we’ve got.
Like I said last week, we’re already aware of the obvious stuff, like texting behind the wheel and drunk driving. Those behaviors are commonly accepted as shitty.
