Fun, Holidays and Accidents

I'm writing this post while listening to a radio news report of yet another fatal road accident on our increasingly perilous Kenyan roads.

Over a period of time I've noticed a few things:

On Friday, it appears to me that more drivers throw the rulebook (if there's one in Kenya) out of the window, with more carefree, me-first driving exhibited. As a result more accidents seem to occur on Friday more than any other day of the week.

Now, the Friday after pay days seem to have even more reckless driving exhibited, and probably even more accidents than other Fridays.

It's the holiday season - look at the traffic as a result of general impatience, me-first etc, and more and more serious accidents reported.

So a layman's conclusion can be drawn:

The more likelihood and anticipation of enjoyment that one has when driving, the more likely one is to drive carelessly in one's bid to get to the 'fun' spot...

Is true for you?

Have a safe Christmas.
