I’ve mentioned before that when I lived in Atlanta 8 years ago, I drove like the proverbial bat: insanely fast. However, I never tailgated, weaved in and out of traffic, nor did I text or email while driving. I may have squeezed through a light or a few. Driving in Atlanta today is like driving […]
