Drivers never cease to amaze me. Just the other day I was driving on the highway and watched a semi suddenly decide he did not want "that" exit ramp, so he swirved into the lane next to him and cut the other driver off! But wait, it gets better! As I passed the truck and the car he cut off, I noticed the woman driving the car was doing her CHECKBOOK...yes, that's right her CHECHBOOK, on the steering wheel! I guess balancing just could not be done at any safer time then speeding down the highway at 65mph. Oh and the driver of the truck...on his cell phone.
Like I said, this really should not surprise me. It has become such a "me" society that people do not take into account the other people on the road. How many times have you been cut off my someone who flips on their turn signal and proceeds to come into your lane? And who gets the dirty look and the #1 signal, you do of course! The last time I checked a turn signal was supposed to signal that they need to make a lane change...NOT...HERE I COME, YOU BETTER GET OUT OF MY WAY! I am convinced that this reckless attitude stems partially from the idea that they (offending driver) think you will do anything to avoid hitting them because you don't want the hassle of an accident. Maybe it is time insurance companies got stricter with people who cause accidents.
My mother is constantly reminding me of how scared she is for when my children become licensed to drive. Since that is a mere 5 years away for my oldest, I am going to hold onto the hope that the cars will be more advanced and not allow drivers to make these careless choices!
Tell me the craziest thing you have witnessed as a driver.
