So just imagine if you lived somewhere with a warmer climate - and the road was slick with compressed slush and/or "black ice"[^]. The latter is dangerous even when walking as it is often quite invisible. That "had near-death experince" would likely be "had yet another near-death experience". All of them are excellent drivers - just ask them.

Here (alas, not just locally), stopping for red-lights, stop-signs, and generally using signals is, apparently optional. Particularly so for SUV drivers - must be part of the warranty or something.

"If you are searching for perfection in others, then you seek disappointment. If you seek perfection in yourself, then you will find failure." - Balboos HaGadol Mar 2010
