And Today’s Nicest Driver Award Goes To…

The lady in the red Saab. When she heard a siren at the intersection, she stopped at a green light, popped the hazards, and waited for the ambulance to get through. This is atypical behavior for Boston drivers. Uncommon. Unusual. This never ever happens in the city. And that disturbs me. Urban motorists are bereft of the courtesy afforded to other drivers, including the EMTs behind the wheel of a blatantly loud ambulance. (Last night, a taxi driver waited in front of another ambulance while he took on new passengers.) But this lady made the right decision, and I stand behind her. Saab lady, you’re okay in my book.
