How about kinetic energy itself? If you know *what* produces power to
induce kinetic energy into the vehicle but not *how* the laws of
physics govern kinetic energy; what damn good is that going to do for
you? How about some basics of safe/defensive driving? How about
considering the good of the many instead of the you?
