We were driving behind a pizza delivery guy that was reckless. I called the number on his vehicle and talked to his manager. The driver was still in his car and just returning to the pizza place. Gotcha!

I haven't a problem with wrapped vehicles but I do have a problem with bad drivers.  Not having your car wrapped does not give you a free ride to speed and be erratic, on the phone or otherwise!  

I was passed the other day, on a highway marked 80 kph by 5 cars in a row, all driving at least 120kph.  All cars passed on a double line, with a curve coming up; an accident just waiting to happen.  Luckily the police were around the curve and EVERY.SINGLE.ONE.OF.THEM got pulled over.  I slowed down to a crawl, put my window down as I passed them and gave them all a thumb's up!!!!!

That's why my wrap makes me a better driver.  I don't text while driving, so I don't want people calling me to complain about my driving.  The last ticket I got was in California in 1980.  I plan on keeping it that way.

Such folks, long ago, abandoned the pursuit of peer approval and have embarked on their personal journey of Success Theater and Vanity Metrics.

They care not what you think, and will be unable to hear what you say. However, they do have a 'shrill' dimension they rely on consistently.

But you DO have an obligation to disrupt her day before an innocent is harmed.
