No Mad Max really is not out there, but the way people are driving seems to be something. I drive for a living so some of the stuff I see it crazy. Rules of the road and Common Sense should be followed along with patience.
24/7 the roads are used by different person for different uses, while you drive to where ever that might be, work, school or even errands. You aren't the only one driving, if you are late you aren't the only one, so slow down and have some patience.
Common Sense is important, everyday we encounter the same thing on our way to work, past by a school, crosswalk or some kind of bike riders. Be prepared for something or anything, the same goes with pedestrian and cyclists. Know your route, slow down when needed and patience.
Where you need to go might not be that important, is it worth getting into a accident or worse.
So Drive safe, Slow down, show patience and enjoy your drive.
