A Reader's Suggestion for the Holidays

Dear Dr. Gridlock:
In many previous years, on Thanksgiving, the Dr. Gridlock column has run letters from readers about kindnesses given to them when they have car trouble. Thanksgiving is the best time for that, I think.

Or maybe Christmas? Thanks, Dr. Gridlock. I read your column even though I walk to the subway and take Metro to work. I try and stay the heck off the Beltway if at all possible.

We don't need to limit the Thank You's to roadside assistance. There are good Samaritans on our trains, buses, trails and sidewalks as well. Let me know if you've benefitted from a traveler's kindness. Write to me at
