When Driving to Pensacola Beach....


When driving to Pensacola Beach ... for the holidays, just remember that the other cars you see may well be driven by lunatics like this woman, who was "so bored" she began filming herself on the road from Atlanta to Pensacola. On camera, she says she's itching to "go faaaassst," waves both arms in the air as she plays air guitar, nearly falls asleep when her eyelids droop, and yawns uncontrollably.

Those other drivers, just like this woman, may confess in mangled syntax, "For some reason I can't speak properly when I drink." After eating a "ribwich" while driving, they could become so smeared with barbeque sauce they are tempted to take their hands off the wheel to demonstrate how greasy they've become.

Those other drivers, you can bet, frequently will be taking their eyes off the road as they play around with music CDs. They could be repeatedly gazing at their own image on a video cam screen. Likely, they will fall asleep at wheel, as this woman nearly does.

Most disturbing of all, remember that those other drivers on the road well may be afflicted with such bad judgment that they will post the evidence of their gross negligence on the Internet for all to see.

Alas, the video has been removed from YouTube. After entertaining us for several days -- not to mention educating us about driving habits of those heading for Pensacola Beach -- it seems the budding Atlanta film-maker/imminent auto wreck victim has had second thoughts. Maybe, just maybe, her judgment is improving.

Good luck to her... and anyone she may encounter on the road.
