  1. THERE ARE a lot of people who think that compliance with simple instructions makes them inferior or stupid, and so they constantly go against common sense. That Audi driver, well, he must have felt like a “big” boy for refusing to follow safety recommendations. It is just sad that some innocent people had to go with him.
