    1Last night I was driving from Harrisburg to Lewisburg:a __1__ of about eighty miles.It was late and I was in a hurry.However:if anyone asked me how fast I was __2__:I'd say I was not overspeeding. Several times I got __3__ behind a slowmoving truck on a narrow road:and I was holding my fists tightly with __4__.

    At one point along an open highway:I __5__ a crossroad with a traffic light.I was alone on the road by now:but as I __6__ the light:it turned red and I braked to a stop.I looked left:right and behind me.Nothing.No cars:no suggestion of headlights:but there I sat:waiting for the light to __7__:the only human being for at least a mile in any __8__.

    I started __9__ why I refused to run the light.I was not afraid of being __10__:because there was obviously no policeman around:and there certainly would have been no __11__ in going through it.

    Much later that night:after I __12__ a group of my friends in Lewisburg and climbed into bed near midnight:the question of why I'd stopped for that light __13__ I think I stopped me.同 ) we all have with each other.It's not only the __14__:but it's an arrangement we have:and we trust each other to __15__ it?we don't go through red lights.Like most of us:I'm more likely to be __16__ from doing something bad by the social convention that __17__ it than by any law against it.

    It's amazing that we ever __18__ each other to do the right thing:isn't it?And we do:too. Trust is our __19__ preference.

    I was so __20__ of myself for stopping for the red light that night
