Chapter 11, Page 8 A growing fear

Someone really should reconsider what they're trying to do with those driver's ed videos.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had a bad experience with those scare-'em-straight driving videos. You know, the ones that go into gruesome detail on what happens if you drink and drive or otherwise behave like an idiot behind the wheel. As if Mary's imagination really needed fueling.

I didn't have nightmares as a result of that sort of shock video. I'm not convinced that they're effective - although I'm sure that any number of 'experts' have written articles that say they are. Or should be.

My take is that nitwits will assume that accidents happen to other people, or aren't all that bad or whatever - and that non-nitwits aren't nitwits.
