I'm in Birmingham, Alabama. So YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS to this ^^^^. Just followed one of these phvcktards out of my neighborhood yesterday (Saturday) morning going to get breakfast fixins. Slower than the 2nd coming of Christ. Later in the day I'm on the way home from an afternoon out with my gal and coming back towards home.................wait for it........wait for it............yup.............here he is again. Any slower in his big Ford diesel extended cab long bed and he would have been going backwards. On a positive note it does give me a chance to brush up on my loud verbal cussing skills.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

I think the HD truck douche bag problem is a nation wide thing. I live in Wyoming and they are also everywhere here. 6 inches of lift mud terrain tires. None of them actually tow anything and never take it off road just a pavement princess. and they are usually the guys that don't have a dime to their name. Live in shit hole house because all there money went into their truck. You can drive in trailer parks all over and see $70000 trucks everywhere.

They need those trucks to pull their houses away when they don't pay the trailer park fees.

On that note.

Today I was headed to the gf's house.

A girl in an older exploder for no reason drifted about 18" into my lane. I honked the horn as I figured she was texting or not paying attention. I got the wtf mouthed from here as I passed.


Then further up the road an Impala that was doing fine and going 3 over decides that after the speed limit goes up to 45 that he would drop it back down to 40... So I had to go around him, at that point he got over into the right lane.

I just don't get it.


I drive like an asshole, but the fast asshole. The kind of asshole that I don't mind as I at least go at a decent click or gtf out of the way...

As a reformed Prius driver I can say this without reservation. Most Prius drivers drive like morons. The Prius craze seems to have started here in the PRK. Land of holier-than-thou, entitled, tree-hugging, save-the-planet while while I sip my frappe-squrrel-fart-latte made with mole-defecated coffee beans hypocrites......but I digress.

We have two laws here in CA. The speed limit, and the slow traffic move right law. Is it too much to ask for these idiots to figure out that they can actually follow both laws at once?

Now for how I really feel....

Choose to chance the rapids. Dare to dance the tide.

Have you ever driven a sub-compact rental such as a Ford Fiesta? Going over 70 will blow you into the next lane with a good breeze.

I've experienced such behavior several times when driving one over 85mph on my way to work.

The Suzuki sidekick was another such vehicle aka the "Suzuki sideflip".

There are just a lot of idiot drivers period.

Biggest problem being smartphones. These things should be outlawed in any moving vehicle.

My wife's friend has one and the friend is really aggressive, tailgates everyone (the hood is on 18 inches long, really scary), plus she drives 100 Mph on the highway. I drove with her from Toronto to Windsor, about 230 miles, she never drove under 80mph

I think some, not all Prius drivers have a similar attitude to the bicyclers in downtown Philly. They think their shit don't stink because they're doing the environment a favor, and it gives them a right to be obnoxious and be in everybody else's way all the time.

The cost of fuel to operate a 6000 pound 400 horsepower half ton that does 0-60 in under 7 seconds is kind of like the price of oil changes for a Porche 911. If you have to ask you probably can't afford it.

My old home town is Seattle. CRAZY a$$ shit goes on there ( left 27 years ago...............thank GAWD). The bicyclists have done just this ^^^^. Have driven their conceited bullsh!t to such an extreme that now there's a huge movement going on to make bicyclists have to "register" their bikes, get a state/county/city issued tag (along with all the fees) AND carry liability insurance. HAR HAR HAR HAR!!!! Dumb arses.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

The summer I got a learners permit we went on a road trip to Michigan traveling the 401 from Ogdensburg to Detroit with a van and boat. Dad had me set cruise control at 80mph and we were still getting passed by everyone. I think the limit was only 100kph/60mph but even trucks and police were going by us
