I believe blog writers are entitled to some degree of silliness.
This is my silly blog.
Many people in urban areas are driving cars with four-wheel drive.
That's fine. I am sure that some tiny percent actually use the four-wheel drive when going to snow country or remote locations.
What strikes me about all people who seem to have four-wheel drives is that few if any understand what the four-wheel drive is all about.
Near me is a sloped dirt street with gravel and it becomes somewhat slippery after rains in San Francisco.
It is quite common for me to find people on this dirt street stuck spinning their wheels in a four-wheel drive vehicle.
They clearly do not know that two axles and four wheels deliberately engaged together are intended to generate distributed power for driving stability in snow, slippery streets, slippery roads and gravel.
How will these people ever learn what four-wheel drives are about? They won't.
It is possible they would learn if some major auto manufacturer explained it in their incessant and ubiquitous TV ads. I don't expect to see that happen.
In the meantime you have my pathetic rant.
