Try 11:30 at night, straight single-lane-each-way road, perfect visibility, me
behind a semi with a heavy load, some kind of vehicle behind me that keeps
swinging half-way into the left lane as if he wants to pass. We all start slowly
from the light, about 1/4 mile to a long and *very* steep uphill. I can see
at the top of the hill, and can see it's another truck already on the way down.
Doofus behind me decides the semi isn't going fast enough, and figures this is
the time to pass, and pulls out.
Hmmm.... he doesn't seem to be passing very fast. Changed his mind? No, his
headlights are still coming up beside me. Oh, that's why he's so slow... it's a
motorhome. Still, he should be moving faster, shouldn't he, what with that truck
flying down the hill at us? Ahhh, that's why... he's pulling a goddamn trailer!
Like yours, he just barely got back in the right lane in time, as there's no way
in hell the truck on the hill could have stopped.
Quite acceptable I would think. In fact, I don't see why any agency
suing Ford for selling them dangerous, defective fireballs would turn
right around and buy more of the same dangerous, defective fireballs
that they are suing Ford over. If there's a police department that's
doing this, then I have to assume they might not truly beleive the
claims they have set forth in their lawsuit.
The town I used to live in is one of the plaintiffs in the case. They
seem to genuinely believe their claim: the same year they joined the
lawsuit, they replaced their old Crown Vics with new Impalas.
