Regarding "idiot" drivers

Copied from Dr. Mark Barnes in Dec. 2015 copy of Motorcycle Consumer News.

"In the early 1900s, "idiot" was actually a technical term (legal, medical, psychological) for people whose mental abilities were beneath what's normal for a three-year-old child."

Remind you of any cage drivers you've seen lately?

Earlier this summer I was in my car in the big city and I had a guy, riding two up, on a Harley shoot out from an intersection on the right and across three lanes of traffic so he could make a quick left. As I drove by I called him an Idiot. I can't repeat his response. So they are everywhere, not just in a car.
