My Take: By Matthew McCully

By Matthew McCully

You don’t have to wear a mask.
You also don’t have to drive on the right side of the road.
But your odds of getting from point A to point B safely are exponentially higher if you do.
I know it seems like an assault on your freedom to be forced to wear a mask. I guess in some ways it is. But let me explain why the rule was made.
As a population we can’t be trusted. We are entitled, in a hurry and when no one is looking we throw things out the car window.
It only takes one person ignoring a lane closure sign to back traffic up for miles.
That’s why there are lines on the road, and speed limits, and traffic laws, and rules about wearing masks in public. To keep everyone on the same page and keep them safe.
