Don’t nanny us
Too right about ‘t he current batch of self-righteous douchebags’ and their ignorance about classic-car owners and t heir love of a ll cars, pre or post 2002: The love and passion that ta kes us out on t he road, early some weekends to avoid the once-a-week drivers wrapped in the cocoon of t heir late model cars wit h a ll t he safet y features t hat a llow t hem to drive like nuph-nuphs let out of k indergarten for t he weekend.
What these so ca lled experts fail to see and understand, is t he passionate respect we have for our cars, t hose who ride with us and the obser vance we have for the road rules. That is what road safet y is about: It’s ca lled being accountable, acting responsibilit y, using common sense and giv ing respect to ot her road users. We don’t look to the nanny state to look af ter us by making needless dumb rules and reg ulations t hat cause ot hers t he loss of freedom and enjoy ment.
As a lways, keep up the great work. Mike O’Neill, Email.
