I used to drive quickly on backroads, and was good in the sense that I was locally competitive in my class in autocross (B Stock in an RX-8). Then I totaled my WRX in 2006, with my own driving overconfidence at least partly at fault.

Since then I've become a safe old man at heart. I don't tailgate. I don't speed: I'll do an indicated 46 mph in 40 mph zones and sit on cruise control in the right lane at an indicated 60 mph on 55 mph freeways. I don't swerve about. I try to maximize the use of regenerative braking in the wife's Prius.

Perhaps my testosterone levels are down...
