Don't use it to hit concrete barriers. This kills the car.

Never said I "neglect" my car, I just don't treat it like a high valued collectable, because it's not and never will be.

Do: Use cruise control.
Don't: Pass on the right... (unless you're in a country that drives on the left)

(Please pardon my auto-correct)

What do you do when you close the gap between you and someone who is going 10mph slower than you and obviously has no intention of moving to a farther right lane? In America flashing the brights is looked at as some sort of emergency thing and people FREAK OUT... and then slow down.
