It's Not Easy Being Bad

One of my favorite comedy shows on Canadian television is ‘Canada’s Worst Driver’. The premise is to take a driver who is accident prone, easily distracted or otherwise a menace on Canadian roads, put them through a battery of interesting challenges and see who comes out the loser - the one who just can’t learn to drive.

I’ve always wondered whether there was some way that I could fake being a menace and get on the show just to see what fun I could have. Turns out that it is really very hard to be a bad driver. You have to spend a fair amount of energy to create situations where you actually put yourself in harm’s way.

How do I know? I tried.
