    Quite. Although I can understand the N/S part of driving being a topic of conversation.

    Like anything else we set out to do, we are extremely efficient if we are trying to get somewhere - which usually translates to being "good" or "competent".

    When I was in my teens and very early 20's, I got about 3 or 4 tickets for various reasons (speeding, tail light out, didn't move my car for the street sweeper, rolling stop at a stop sign, etc.). After paying for those tickets and feeling like I completely wasted that money, I just realized the obvious: if I don't break these laws, then I won't get any tickets.

    So, it's simple really: When at a stop sign, come to a COMPLETE stop. It takes 1 second. If changing lanes, use your blinker (that's why they are installed in the car). Don't go over that 5mph above the speed limit (in some places there is more like a 10mph "grace" speed limit) - and in every case, do not "stand out" when driving. Don't be the fastest car on that road at that moment. Always make sure someone else is going at least as fast as you are. Put your registration stickers on your plates as soon as you get them in the mail. Blah, blah, blah.

    I tell my ESFP brother (who gets tickets on a monthly basis): If you don't break any laws, you can't get any tickets. The only reason you are getting so many is because you are breaking laws. It's just a matter of playing within the rules of the game.

    *rolls eyes* You know full-well, honeybuns, that it's not your car anymore, we had to give it to the paraplegic guy as part of settling the case after the ... mishap.

    Oh shut up, buddy, we gave you the car, what more do you want from us? (And get your helper monkey to log out once in awhile, thanks -- it keeps posting junk like this all over the forumz!)

    Pretty much.

    I still break laws, but only in places where I feel the odds are very slim based on my current projections/probabilities. I also let other less wary people go first and "trigger any traps" ... minimizing my own risk.

    All you have to do is think and imagine a bit, and it's pretty easy to avoid trouble.
