Bad drivers, dangerous roads

This less-than-comforting info was in a motorcycle magazine I subscribe to:

A recent poll by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research found that 54 percent of respondents felt driving is less safe today than it was five years ago, and more than half of them think they're more likely to be involved in a motor-vehicle accident. Many of them cited the behavior of other motorists as the cause for that belief, as well as their own poor driving habits.

[American Rider, August 2009 issue, P. 16]

"Yeah... I have poor driving habits, and I'm likely to be in an accident because of it."

Is that a good attitude to take, as you get behind the wheel of your 3500-pound cruise missile?
