Journal Entry 1 by wingAzukiwing from Miami, Florida USA on Monday, April 11, 2022
This is quite a fascinating read about traffic - the sometimes unpredictable psychology of how people drive, the fascinating science of traffic and vehicle design, and curious behavior science results.

Say, for example, which is a more dangerous road - a narrow road zigzagging up a mountain, or a straight, wide highway? The answer seems like a no-brainer, until you consider that the dangerous road will have your full concentration, while it's easy to doze off when driving mile after mile on a straight highway.

You will also believe that a bicycle lane is safer for cyclists, but research finds that drivers feel it's okay to drive faster when cyclists are limited inside their lanes, compare to when they are sharing the road.

Finally ready to start another round of the Biographies of Things book box, which means I have to realize that I never catalogued the ones that were in the box when it returned to me. This one is good for another round.

Journal Entry 5 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, January 31, 2023
I'm claiming this one from the latest round of the Biographies of Things bookbox. I've done a lot of driving over the years, from the twisting byways of downtown Boston to the wide open spaces of the West, and have seen my share of pretty-darned-awful behavior; will see if this book explains any of it!
