Consider too, some people have road rage, are on illegal, and or Rx drugs, or alcholol. Let us not stop there, then of course we have purely reckless drivers who are late for work, a conference, or those simply who jockey to be first...which include the tailgaters, and those who do not follow the rules of the road...all of these idiots are accidents waiting to happen. Just think of all of the reports of people crashing in to buildings, it boggles the mind...amazing.

To all these numbnuts out there who feel the need to pretend to be my proctologist by driving so close to my rear bumper because they think I'll get out of their way or drive faster, guess again. I actually slow down and I just might slam on the brakes for no other reason but to watch you crash through your front windshield and splatter on the pavement. Just because you think you're special don't make it so. Have a nice day.

FYI, a handful of loose change works, too.

Don't forget those pesky diabetics that can't or won't manage their levels properly.

Sounds like you are one of those m0rons that decides to take a leisurely drive and go sight seeing in the passing lane. Try getting out of the PASSING lane if you aren't passing anyone and see how that resolves your problem.

I like to get them with the window washer fluid, but you need either really strong front washers or a strategically altered rear washer.

maybe if people weren't driving in the left lane going 30 mph, people wouldn't have road rage.

most accidents are caused by people who, for unspecified reasons, brake every 2 seconds or who drive drastically below the speed limit.

good day.

Don't forget the shavers, newspaper readers, texters, cell phoners and make-up artists. We have too many distractions in our cars. Oh, don't forget the REAL cause of the backup at each accident, the rubbernecking fools who have to slow down to get a better look.
