As I consider myself to be martial-arts challenged, my comment to the young woman on her encounter is, “Congratulations, Priscilla. You did a Dang good job!” Being a Clint Eastwood fan, my comment to the two young men involved is, “A man’s gotta know his limitations.”
A Dang Good Job
Ever hear the expression, “Weathering the horn?” It refers to the passage around the southern tip of South America, past Cape Horn.

A scientist/engineer has finally come up with a driver’s side mirror for automobiles that “eliminates the blind spot.” Great idea, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may take a quite while approving it for use. Eventually, it will begin appearing on new cars as a standard feature. In the meantime, there is already a way in which your car’s rear view mirrors can be adjusted to solve the “Blind Spot” problem.
Most Law Enforcement Agencies instruct their officers on how to adjust a car’s mirrors in such a way that the chance of sideswiping a car in the adjacent lane is eliminated if the driver bothers to look in the mirror. It is simple, and once you get used to the idea that it is not necessary to see the side of your own car in the mirrors, you’ll automatically be a safer driver (as long as you remember to look).

Here is a two-minute video that will easily teach you the proper way to adjust your car, van or small truck’s mirrors. It could someday save your life!
