Memes for Good DrivingHere, under this heading, I'm collecting all the little ideas I've had that I think make for better driving. Actually, “ideas” isn't quite the word—what I'm really interested in is ways of thinking about things.
All that, however, should be clear from the name. The point I really wanted to make is that not everything having to do with good driving is filed under this heading. That's true in a very broad sense, because everything has something to do with good driving (see The Complexity of Driving), but it's also true in a very specific sense, which is that any kind of knowledge about driving is beneficial. It's good to know how cars work, mechanically, and to know the laws of physics that govern moving objects; it's good to understand communication between cars, and to make models of traffic. And so on.
Speaking of knowledge, you might like to take a look at what I said, in Nihilism, about belief relativism.
