From: Jim Adams

As a forensic psychiatrist, I too have studied, over the past three years, the erratic driving of many Jetta owners. It is outrageous.

I have a theory. I suspect that Jetta drivers are convinced (perhaps by salesmen) that a Jetta is the full equivalent of a Beamer. While in their hearts they know this is not true, they have something to prove to themselves and others. I suspect that this erratic driving is meant to "prove," in its lame fashion, that a Jetta is as good as a Beamer.

By the way, surely small red pickup trucks easily rival Jettas in terms of erratic and risky behavior.
