Question of the Week: Gawkers

If you came upon the scene of a terrible highway accident just after the ambulances arrived, would you stop to watch? Assume that your presence would neither help nor hinder the rescuers.

Absolutely not. In fact, I'd be the driver who is tailgating the idiot in front of me who is slowing down to see if there's a severed head. I'd be screaming from the safety of my car for the person in front of me to keep moving, that their idiotic need to be nosy is going to cause a second accident. The gawkers are so irritating.

*Question of the week comes from The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D
