    Just how stupid can drivers be?????

    I was watching the news yesterday about a 911 dispatcher helping a driver stop when their car was speeding out of control. He was lauded for telling the driver to "put the car in neutral and shut the ignition off". How ignorant are the drivers on the roads today to have to be told that?????

    Sheesh! If you don't know how to drive, don't drive!!!!!
    Honk if you love Jesus.

    Text if you want to meet him.

    Sounds to me like the dispatcher messed up. He should have told the person on the phone to immediately unbuckle their seat beat and make sure the gas pedal (most far right pedal/lever) was full pressed to the floor. Then to look for the most solid unbreakable object possible. Once all the above is complete to steer, by using the circle thing in front of them, into that unbreakable object.

    Whilst in complete agreement with your suggestion and whilst accepting that your logic is impeccable, (I tried to pecc it and couldn't) would you not accept that the use of logic and reason is a bit beyond the average LEO/911 dispatcher.

    Should come as no surprise, but I minored in philosophy (helped avoid a cluster of business classes).

    Anyhow, day two into my minor they taught impeccability infused into logic.

    It makes my arguments not only valid and sound, but absolutely impeccable!
