Focus on Driving

This morning on my ride to work I noticed a smashed up car pushed off the road along Alki Avenue.

Someone had to be driving pretty fast to push a car off the road (or be pushed).

As my Nordic-American people say, it could have been worse.  In fact, here’s a sign to show how it could have been worse, probably caused in the same crash:

Meanwhile, rather than focusing on the carnage caused by inattentive and/or angry motor vehicle drivers, some people seem more concerned about this “obnoxious” “visual pollution.”

I think we should focus on driving, whether we are the drivers or we are just affected by them.  Cars kill. Tipped over bikes… not so much.

For instance, not much further along my commute, I came upon this car, rapidly backing down the bike path.

Let’s keep our eyes on the ball… or our eyes on the cars.
