More Unsolicited Advice

When you are, in an ill-advised fashion, driving to a Major Urban Area the day after Christmas- an urban area famed for its terrible traffic...

... and you have already heard reports of TWO cars ON FIRE along your route...

... and you see five fire trucks, an ambulance, and the fire chief all go by within three minutes...
