Road Rage

I hope I’m not the only one here who gets a little rage now and then. Thought a thread would maybe help vent a little. I have a couple. First I think cars must not come standard with blinkers any more. Second I think people in general think that they are the only ones on the road. People just do what they want when they want with no consideraton for others. Anybody else got any road pet peeves?

The no blinker thing makes me nuts and so does 50 MPH IN THE LEFT LANE AREYOUKIDDINGME!?!?!?!

Also, if you’re in the left trying to pass and someone is slowwwwwly passing the car on the right and some bunghole is riding your bumper trying to push you through the other car.

Oh, and people who blast by on the left and then cut me off to turn right.

I am no longer in a hurry to get any where. I rarely get raged while driving anymore. I just look at stupid people and smile because there’s nothing I can do to change them. 20 years ago I would go ballistic when someone cut me off. Not anymore. Life’s too short.

How about the cell phone users, the ones that get so wrapped up in their conversations they forget that they are suppose to be driving.

I know right?!?!?!

saw a good one on Facebook the other day…

It’s a good thing not everyone owns a smart phone. Someone has to honk when the light turns green…

Today I had a little chinese lady gun it to pull out in front of me then she consistently did 35 in the 50mph zone…Then when it reduced to 35, she slowed to 25…no joke.

Oh and not to mention she crossed the double yellow a few times and almost caused a couple accidents…wow people…

We actually had a tragedy heading home from a parking garage we did In CT a month ago. A young lady shot onto the thruway while texting and came straight over and tapped the front bumper of the flatbed with the trailer attached my guys were driving. I was ahead of them in the pickup truck and never saw what transpired. She apparently tapped the bumper while doing over 55mph and she tried to correct her car after the tap and her car flipped numerous times and landed on an SUV with both cars now tumbling over the guide rail and nearly down a 100’ embankment.
Both drivers had to be cut out of their cars with serious injuries. My guys called me and I thought they were pulling my leg. The only damage to my flatbed was a small dent to the front bumper but to see these cars over the guide rail all because this lady was apparently texting while merging into traffic that’s doing at least 55 mph is insane.
