Sunshine, Fifty Degrees...

So everybody turns off their brains and gets out on the road! Wheeeee! *crash*

I sometimes wonder how this area can hold this much stoopid and not spontaneously combust. In the three-block run from here to Starbucks at lunchtime, laurie_robey and I watched one fender-bender, I saw two pedestrians jump in front of a pickup truck on wet pavement (that managed to miss them, thank goodness), and another near-miss with somebody going straight through in a left-turn-only lane.

That's not counting the strange woman in the fur coat who was looking in every car in the parking lot as she strode along smoking her cigarette, and the guy in front of us who couldn't take a sharp left because he couldn't put down his phone long enough to put both hands on the wheel.

Oy.

All that stoopid overflows from Washington DC. When the entire planet is saturated with Brand-America Stoopid, then the terrorists will have won.

Lizard Rat out.

Nu-uh man, it comes up from Norfolk, VA along I-64, up to I-95 and spreads out from there. I was driving erlier this morning and witnessed something that mde my jaw drop(and nearly get mowed down by angry apes behind me), some douche pulled a left turn from the far right lane on a FIVE lane divided highway where the two left-most are for that purpose. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Trust me, we feel for ya....
It's a traffic offence to talk on your mobile phone over here whilst driving, and only today new legislation came in making the on-the-spot fine higher, and allowing the Police to put a 3-points endorsement on your license.

Dunno how many times I've had to avoid people doing stupid things, and I'm the one in the car designed to be driven stupidly ^.^'

We ALL feel ya!
There have been reports of it being in MS along I-20. Where someone in a red Mini-Van tried to merge into my lane, and my car!
I slowed down so we wouldn't wreck!
