I'm no driving expert, but here's my understanding: all of those laws you usually follow at home - not crossing the double yellow line, obeying speed limits, staying two car lengths back - they still apply. Shocking, I know.


Also, turn on yo...

Also, turn on your headlights when you're driving through dense fog. Please. I don't want to rear end your disastrous crash. Yes, I'm looking at you, Oldsmobile from Illinois.

It's amazing the droves of bad drivers that migrate to national parks. Why tailgate in a region where you're guaranteed to have to stop suddenly for wildlife? I've had to avoid a bear, multiple deers, and bison so far. There needs to be a driver's entry exam.

Way to avoid deer at high speed...

I remember once coming home from Philadelphia, we left at midnight, at round 5am the sun came out and I had one hour to go. There was no traffic in sight so I was going pretty decent 80mph. Down the horizon I see three deer, daring each other to cross the highway.

One of them crosses out, and I don't know who saw who first. All I knew I had enough reaction time to slow down to 50mph and honk the my horn like my life depended on it. (Because it kinda did). That deer ran back so fast, he almost tripped over his own legs.
