Stating the obvious
Did you know that driving dangerously is…dangerous?

Every now and then we come across an article that makes us cringe. Here’s one of them. It’s an editorial published in Gulf News entitled ‘Exercise three Cs on Dubai’s roads.’ The writer makes a number of spectacularly obvious statements like “…every time you get behind the wheel of a car, exercise the three Cs: Courtesy, Caution and Common sense.”
Does this mean that harassing other drivers is bad? And driving while having a three-course meal isn’t safe? And when we show our friends we can drive with no hands (“Look! No hands!”) we’re putting other people at risk?
Say it isn’t so.
