No Rubberneckin'

Occasionally, when people are on their commute, something miraculous, mysterious, or otherwise interesting happens on the edge of the road. These occurrences include but are not limited to:

  • Accidents

  • Road Side Assistance

  • Natural Disasters

  • Sport Events

  • Police pulling people over

  • Streakers

  • Planes flying overhead with advertisements

When an interesting event occurs, people begin to do something that I refer to as "rubbernecking". Rubbernecking is the act of twisting your attention away from the road and on to the roadside distraction. What people do not realize when they rubberneck is that they tend to slow down. This is bad. Slowing down for one person tends to cause slowing down for others and spreads the rubbernecking because people then realize there is something interesting to stare at.

Please, Seattle, try to refrain from rubberneckin' and maintain your true speed!
