On any given day, in Seattle and around the country, it is a given that many people will be running late. Sometimes this causes people to do things they otherwise might not, such as exceed the speed limit while driving. It isn't just those behind the wheel however that behave in ways they might not if they were on time. In some cases their actions may be drastic enough to cause an accident.
This was displayed in the actions of a man on a city bus last week who feared that he would be late for work.
