Traffic in Coral Gables

This afternoon I walked up to the store — five blocks — to exchange some contact lens solution. On the way I saw a Honda Civic run a stop sign and nearly t-bone an SUV, a Mercedes pull out of a parking garage and bump the rear end of the car in front while they waited for an opening in traffic, and I nearly got run over by a PT Cruiser as it pulled into a parking lot.

Guess what all three incidents had in common? Go on — guess. Okay, time’s up. All three drivers were talking on cell phones.

It’s a miracle I get home every night in one piece.
