he knows what he’s talking about. and why not listen to a racecar driver that’s survived this long doing what he does?
and his suggestions are the same ones i am constantly having to scream at idiots on the road: 1. move over! that’s right, slow drivers are dangerous when they are in the way. speeders are going to speed (mr. andretti pauses at this point to say speeding is bad. this from a man with a corvette, a lamborghini, and a mercedes. uh-huh.) 2. pay attention! how simple is that? duh! and drive smoothly. that’s number 3, drive smoothly.
it’s more than a skill, good driving. it’s almost an art form. there’s a rhythm to it, a heightened awareness (especially when you’re going really fast. and i’m pretty sure mario goes fast on the freeway too, no matter what he said).
so you have it, from mario and me: get out of the way, pay attention, and don’t be a jerk. simple. ok, now, i want to see some better driving out there, ‘k now?
