"Road hog!" I roared as a Porsche 911 cut me off in a short straightaway on the streets of Monte Carlo. I slammed the accelerator of my 944 and felt the steering wheel tremble from the extra power. I never saw the fence till I smashed into it, when the wheel rocked me into the realization that I was in big trouble. Soon the rattling was replaced by an eerie stillness as I barrel-rolled through the air in my own version of the "Dukes of Hazzard." Crashing to earth took the joy out of my racing day - the impact nearly jolted my hands off the wheel.

Despite being separated by 11 years in age, Justin and Stefan Wilson compete, especially when it comes to anything with wheels. The brothers battle on iRacing, an online simulated racing game. They've taken it to go-kart tracks. About the only concession Stefan Wilson, 24, will make is that he can't vie with his 35-year-old brother when it comes to riding a bike. So perhaps it's not a shock that the Wilson brothers said Friday thay they do not plan on giving each other any quarter if Sunday's Grand Prix of Baltimore were to come down to them.

The GMAC Insurance National Driver Test continues to rate Maryland a bottom-10 state for "Licensed Drivers Knowledge of Basic Road Rules. " And like Maryland, numerous Northern states, such as Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, were part of the bottom 10. Nearby Delaware, Virginia and West Virginia scored higher, and are not part of the bottom 10. To me, Maryland's problem is a culture of political stubbornness in not weeding out thousands...

Driving can become a challenge as people age. Jan Crye, an occupational therapist and certified driving rehabilitation specialist at the Driving Evaluation and Training Program at Sinai Hospital, called it a delicate balance between the need for independence and the need for safety. She pointed to an 83-year-old man who recently drove the wrong way on a California freeway, causing a pileup. There are many factors that should be considered before elders get behind the wheel, she said. Question: Is there a specific age at which people should have their driving skills tested?

We thought we'd gotten so much tougher about winter, didn't we? No more panicked runs to the supermarket for bread, milk and toilet paper at the first hint of snow. No more jittery conversations around the office about when the storm would hit and when we could make a break for home without drawing too much attention. No longer would we shoot anxious looks at the sky and fixate on weather updates from Bob Turk and the great Tom Tasselmyer. Or spend hours nervously watching news footage of salt trucks hitting the streets or Rob Roblin gleefully jabbing a yardstick into a snowbank to give us accumulation totals.

As the all-knowing, all-powerful Maryland legislature prepares to once again take away more freedom from its subjects (citizens), it amazes me how easily that citizenry will relinquish those freedoms time and time again. This time it's the handheld cell phone ban ("Ending crash calls," March 29). We don't need more laws. If you can't effectively drive while talking on the phone, then don't do it. You and you alone are responsible for knowing your individual limitations and acting accordingly.

When Sandy Summers picks up her children - ages 6 and 10 - at elementary school, they're greeted with squirts of hand sanitizer. "When they get in the car, I put a glob on their hands," said the nurse, who lives in Homeland. "If they're going to eat a snack in the car, I make them use some. ... If I go to the grocery store, when I get in the car, the first thing I do is use the sanitizer.

Josephine Montesion has been driving her 1995 Chevy Lumina for years. But it was just this week that the 83-year-old Ellicott City resident learned where the horn is and how to adjust the steering wheel. "I've never had to blow the horn," she said. Montesion and several other older drivers gained automobile insight by taking their vehicles to Centennial Park in Ellicott City for "Car Fit," a program sponsored by the county police Wednesday. Several police officers joined a group of occupational therapists and spent the day helping seniors learn tips on operating their vehicles - including things they might have forgotten or never known.
