Stupid, Stupid Drivers

This post is mainly addressed to the ignorant woman who ran me off the road on the way to work this morning.

I'm very sorry that my car was in your way when you had to swerve into my lane because you had to answer your cell phone.

I'm very lucky that I managed to bring my car to a stop on the road shoulder without it turning into a accident and possibly killing my kids that were in the car on the way to school.

I'm very saddened to see that you merely pulled back into your lane and just kept going, even after you saw my car careening off the road. I guess you don't think you have any responsibility for what almost happened. Or maybe you were just trying to make your quick get away in case any of us were killed, before you could get charged with manslaughter.

More and more stupid drivers take to the roads but give only 10% of their attention to the actual task of operating their vehicles safely.

Most are too busy and too distracted by putting on makeup, brushing/combing their hair, shaving, reading, looking for something in the glove box, talking to their passengers, changing the radio station, eating or drinking, sightseeing, lighting a cigarette, searching for a CD, handing their kid in the backseat some animal crackers, texting, programming their gps, looking for a song on their mp3 player, talking on their cell, or the million of other things that they try to do when they should be 100% focused on the task at hand.

You are in charge of the safe operation of a 3000lb killing machine. A machine made of steel that can crush and pulverise bone, smash human bodies to a bloody pulp, that can kill in a blink of an eye.

I did not see your tag number and I would have been late for school/work if I had tried to chase you down. But rest assured I saw the dark grey SUV that you were driving, I saw you face (since it was just inches away from mine in my lane). I travel that road every single day on the way to school and work. I take great pleasure in knowing that some day, I will see you again. And when I do, I'm going to track you down.

And when I track you down, I'm going to give you the kind of terror that you gave me this morning. I'm going to make you fear for the your life and the life of your children. I'm going to make you stare death in the eye like you made me do today. And when you feel like all is over for you, when everything you hold dear is just inches from horrible mutiliation or death, then I'm just going to casually walk away like I don't care the least. Just like you did this morning when you kept on driving after you ran our car off the road.

I will find you if it takes me driving that road for the rest of my life. And when I do, you will be sorry, and not just be a sorry individual.

I know exactly what you mean.

I travel 17 miles one way to work, then 17 miles back home each day. It is very, very rare that a day goes by without some other vehicle not drifting into my lane and forcing me to hit the brakes and take evasive action.

And every single time, the other driver just looks up suddenly, looks startled, and jerks their vehicle back into their lane. What were they doing that was so important that it prevented them for driving correctly?

My record so far is 4 vehicles that drifted into my lane in a single day in my 17 mile ride home from work one day. 4 vehicles in a single day? What does that compute to in percentage as far as my life expectancy goes?

And the saddest thing is, that there isn't just some magnet in my truck that attracts these other cars as they go by. No this is just one fleeting instant in these persons trip. I don't think the odd favor it being just a one time thing at that one spot in the road when I just happen to be driving by.

No, I'm betting that their whole trip is just like that. Being distracted by something, swerving from one side to the other. I just happened to be passing at one of the MANY times during their drive that they do this. These people are both stupid and dangerous.

And you know, if there is an accident, they'll walk away without a scratch and some minor damage to their car, while mine is totaled and I end up disabled for life or killed outright.

Young girl, white car, road behind Freds, using both hands to put hair up into a pony tail, steering with her knee, trying to go around a corner, both left side tires in the oncoming lane.

I hit the brakes and dodged her car and she never even took her hands off her hair to correct her car back into her on lane.

Just another stupid Headland driver.
