I believe that the real virtue also lies in our readiness to help the fellow ahead, who has been forced off the road, to get back on it again.
This year, I was fortunate enough to visit Europe. And while I was there, I noticed how very courteous the drivers were to one another. I spoke of this to a friend of mine in London. He thought for a moment, and then with a slight shrug his shoulders said, “Perhaps, but to us it just appears to be common sense to be courteous to the other fellow. That way, he is courteous in return. It makes the journey that much easier for everybody.” Then he added, “And it’s just good insurance to stop and help out if someone is broken down. After all, who knows when I may need a hand myself?”
