Thanks for causing me to look at what I am doing as a result of the
vehicle I choose and my driving habits.

I agree but would go further in that the only behavior I can change is my
own. I must point at me. As I live in that place, those around me see
something different, and some decide to point at themselves. Still,
irregardless of what others do, I can only change me.
