- Get out of my way - I'm not really a big pushy person. I don't like to bluster my way through life. I rather get out of the way of people and remain largely unnoticed. If you are walking in a public thoroughfare and have decided that you are in some kind of musical where you can saunter your way down the sidewalk not really aware of who you are blocking while you are ambling along, just keep to the right, that's all. When it comes to driving, I change a bit. I change in that I assume only the fastest people remain in the left lane and the slowest go in the right. In practice, the fastest people are in the right and the slowest are in the middle lane with the medium speed people trundling along in the left hand lane where they don't belong. Please, just get organized and get out of my way. I'm not in a big hurry, but it doesn't mean I want to plod along watching you check your phone texts. It scares me.
- Quit driving like an idiot - I mentioned earlier to get out of my way. That's fine and well for me, but really you need to stop driving dumb. This includes merging in at the last minute, following someone in their blind spot, starting on a turn and then suddenly stopping, thinking your bike is a car, using your cellphone, testing your 4 wheel drive against the laws of winter physics.
Well I'm sure your new years goals will probably fall into these categories so I thank you in advance. I'm sure you will go a long way to helping my new year be a great one. Thanks for reading.
