Selfies on the Highway

I’m learning more and more every day that driving– just being able to sit behind the wheel, put it in gear, and go somewhere– is a privilege. I mean, think about it: we’re moving these thousand-pound machines around at hundreds of feet per second. Just guess how many things can go wrong at any given moment… I’d say at least 10! And then you have so many other people on the road with those same odds of something going wrong at any moment. Plus 16-year-olds are allowed to do this, too? It’s surprising there aren’t more accidents. I’m not surprised, though, that my car has quite a few dings, dents, and cracks. But as long as the damage is to the body of the car and not to my body, I consider that a win. I mean, isn’t one of the selling points of a car how well it protects against injury? I guess what I’m also saying is, with that in mind, it’s a privilege to drive and I don’t want to make it super easy to test out the safety features of my car by taking “selfies” while I’m cruising down the highway.
