The more things change...
In 1911, Julian Street, author of a book called "My Enemy, the Motor," proposed a philosophy for drivers that would keep them from inadvertently mowing down pedestrians. Seems to me this applies today to avoiding "get offs" as well:
A good driver, he wrote, "must roll through the world upon his leather-upholstered, gas-driven throne, looking down like a pitying god upon mankind and believing in his heart that mankind is made up of the lame, the halt, the blind, the drunk, the imbecile, the suicide."
