Slow down Speed Racer!

Today's green tip comes from the Sierra Club's daily email newsletter, The Green Life. It applies to everyone but especially to all of the crazy drivers in Atlanta. Slow down Speed Racer!!!

"Not only does aggressive driving aggravate others: it also wastes gas. To prevent excess pollution (and to preserve others’ positive moods), drive within the speed limit, accelerate and brake gradually, and use cruise control on highways. Driving in a too-fast, herky-jerky way can lower gas mileage by 33 percent. Plus, your zen-like lack of road rage will clear the streets of psychological pollution too."
