“Driving happy means being more peaceful,” I said. “Driving mad is about a step away from road rage, and there are plenty of statistics to show that road rage is dangerous.
“So I would say the happy, feel-good driver is potentially less dangerous. What do you think?”
He said: “It depends. I've seen normally happy people drive real mad. It's like they're on a mission and ‘get the heck out of my way.' I've seen others who start out mad and get madder.
“So I have an idea. Let's all just take a minute and take a breath, then calm down and drive right. Be happy, be safer.”
Then, he finished with this.
“I know you really don't have all the answers, and I don't either. But share that thought with your column readers.”
You know what? I think I just did.
By the way ...
Here's a happy wish for a special lady in my house, who's special day is today.
Happy birthday, Becky.
Enjoy your week and drive safely.
