Where the heck did I put my cane?!

It used to be that people just drove when they drove. Now we all multi-task by fiddling with the radio/CD/mp3, talk on the phone, input info into the GPS, eat, put on make-up AND attempt to drive. When I lived in the Washington DC area I heard of a driver that was playing a coronet while driving on the GW Parkway.

For some of us, the inattentiveness begins before we even get in the car. You’ve probably seen folks driving with their gas cap on top of the car. Or perhaps you’ve seen the famous coffee cup balancing on the roof just waiting to fall off when they turn or brake. Look closely at the driver’s side of this photo and you'll see their cane. I’m guessing it seemed like a good place to put the cane when they filled up at the local WaWa but then it was just another potential accident waiting to happen. Luckily this driver noticed the screw up and was in the process of pulling over when I snapped the photo with my camera phone.

By the way, I wasn’t the driver when I took the photo.

Until my next post,
