Traveling salesmen make their living visiting as many customers as possible. So speeding to getfrom one appointment to the next is not unheard-of. Which is how I got pulled over by ahighway patrolman. "Don't you ever look at the speedometer?" the officer scolded. Before Iknew it, the truth spilled from my mouth. "As fast as I was going," I admitted, "I was afraid totake my eyes off the road."
