Miscellaneous : Cautious Driver
There was a young driver who would always accelerate hard before coming
to any intersection. He would barrel right through it and slow down
again on the other side. One day he took a passenger who was
understandably unnerved by his driving style.
"Why on earth do you step on the gas before every intersection?" the
anxious passenger asked.
"Well," the young man replied, "I read that you are ten times as likely
to have an accident at an intersection as anywhere else, so I try to
spend as little time in them as possible."
