Life on a one-way street:

We used to live on a short one-way street. The exciting part about life on a one-way street is: watching people drive the wrong way. You can't help noticing that when people (and even dogs) cross a one-way street, they look, at most, one way before stepping onto the - shall we say - playing field. The people who drive the wrong way fall into two neat categories:

  1. The totally clueless.
  2. The lazy, knowing lawbreakers.

The second category really worried me. They would drive fast to get off the street and back into a legal position as fastaspossible. All the wrong-way drivers I saw were lucky; they never had a crash, never got ticketed.
