It's possible the most dangerous thing you'll do today is drive a car.
We can take driving for granted; it's part of our way of life to get behind the wheel when we need to go from A to B.
And many people enjoy being on the road, with car clubs proving a popular hobby for motoring enthusiasts in pre-coronavirus times.
But powerful machines are damaging and deadly when things go wrong - a moment's inattention or misjudgement can bring tragic consequences.
How frustrating then for all careful drivers to see and hear evidence that not everyone is so safety conscious.
Of course we're talking about hoons.
Deliberately reckless drivers who think it's fun, and funny, to act in a way that risks their own health, not to mention that of their passengers and anyone unlucky enough to get in their way.

No doubt every suburb has them, but Albury councillor Darren Cameron thinks they're particularly prevalent in Lavington and North Albury.
He condemns the "constant cacophony of screeching tyres as young people, almost always men, do burnouts around and around the various roundabouts".
Monday's council meeting decided to investigate whether mobile, wireless CCTV at roundabouts and elsewhere to deter anti-social behaviour would be feasible.
Hoon driving, in part, also prompted calls to improve road safety in Glenroy, where residents had been clearing up crash sites at regular intervals.
Their success, however, probably relies as much on driver attitude as reduced speed limits, signs and traffic humps.
We can't just ignore road safety issues because we're not one of the "imbeciles" who are "infesting" our streets, as Cr Cameron describes them.
Maybe you're not a hoon, but if you drive even a little too fast, get distracted by phones or passengers or are too angry, stressed or excited to concentrate, you're not helping anyone.
It is entirely possible the most dangerous thing you'll do today is drive a car.
Take care, always.
