Defensive Driving

Okay, so I got 2 speeding tickets in a year. Now I have to take defensive driving. I have to watch a 4 hour video, and it is a big yawn fest. But here are some highlights from the video so far.

1. Hulk Hogan- Hulk Hogan you ask? What does he have to do with defensive driving? He said that if I don't learn how to drive defensively, he is going to kick my bootie. Fair enough. I will learn how to drive defensively.

2. Quizzes- The geniuses who came up with this program also came up with some very good questions. I would not be surprised to hear that these same questions are on the MCAT. For example: To alleviate fatigue while driving, you should:
a. roll down the window
b. take caffeine
c. take antihistamines

You know that I was dying to say "c."

3. Relevance- I know that it may surprise you to hear this, but these people don't seem to be to concerned about you actually learning how to drive defensively. This is illustrated by another quiz question that I had to answer. "What sport was featured in this lesson?" Sport??? I will be sure to mention that football was the featured sport in my defensive driving class the next time I get pulled over. Maybe the police officer will have mercy on me, considering I didn't really learn how to drive correctly.

I personally have always thought that the best defense is a good offense, so I driving defensively by being offensive when I drive. Do you think that will ever make it into one of those videos?
