You're right, of course, but I find this very difficult logistically. First priority is the driveway, then steps and sidewalks, then take a good long rest. It can be days before I have the ambition...

Me neither! Until I got my tires rotated and found out they had previously been mounted incorrectly, leading to premature wear. They're now mounted correctly but making quite a bit of noise.
