A FABLE FOR PENSACOLA DRIVERS

THE DOG IN THE MANGER

by Aesop

A dog was lying in a manger on the hay which had been put there for the cattle, and when they came and tried to eat, he growled and snapped at them and wouldn’t let them get at their food.  “What a selfish beast,” said one of them to his companions; “he can’t eat himself and yet he won’t let those eat who can.”

    In other words: Don’t hog the road! Passive-aggressive drivers are the worst of all! If you’re on a road with four lanes or more, especially if you’re driving at or below the speed limit, stay in the lane farthest to the right–until/unless you need to make a left turn soon! And whatever speed you’re driving, if you see that a driver in the lane beside you needs to get into the lane in which you’re driving–don’t block that driver just because you can! Speed up or slow down–but make up your mind, so that driver can get where he or she needs to go! If you go out of your way to keep a fellow driver from getting into a space in a lane that you’re not even using, you’re as selfish as the dog in the manger!

    And remember–always use your turn signal, at least a half-block before your turn!

    And don’t even touch that mobile device when you’re behind the wheel!
