I perceive that if a person has magnetic "ribbons" (Bring home our boys,
on his car, he tends to drive erratically. The more ribbons, the kookier he
These ribbons might even be a major factor in accidents. (TIC)
No, it's hats, not ribbons. The wacker the hat, the worst the driver.
Base Ball caps? Somewhat bad. Fedora: look out, your ass is in
And pipe smokers: get a fedora wearing pipe smoker and you are in for
a painful ride!
And women, especially those who (think they) learned to drive in
middle age. Holy crap, Batman, that's the problem.
And salesmen, who have to get where ever their next sales call is, in
the absolute minimum of time.
And Prius owners who think they are holy.
And drivers from adjacent states, no matter what state you are
And you wife, she's a disaster.
Better be able to spend the rest of the day behind the wheel, because if
you can't pass them, you're stuck.
Also, these are usually the people that will drive along 10-12 MPH under
the speed limit, until you come to a passing zone, where all of a sudden
they're going 15 MPH over...
Um...wait a miute there, Sparky!
(I'm not a salesman, I'm a Field Service rep. The sooner I get done, the
sooner I get home. It was already late in the afternoon when I decided it
would be prudent to wait for the car already in the roundabout, and pissed
the Corvai...er, Corvette driver off...)
And practice "Priusfoot" in heavy traffic. That's where you try to keep
the car in Electric mode as long as you can. In my area (Western Mass,
just to the left of San Francisco) the usual Prius owner is a starry eyed,
Save the Planet type that thinks burning fossil fuel is a sin. That also
makes them some of the *dumbest* drivers on the road. I know, I worked at
a Toyota dealer in the middle of Liberalville...
Of course! Since most states don't have reciprocity, all you have to do
when you get a speeding ticket is pay it, and that's the end. It doesn't
appear on your driving record.
But, that doesn't mean you can just disregard rules of the road because
you're not 'familiar' with the area. How many times have I seen someone
with out of state plates cut across 3 lanes of traffic because they lined
up to take a left when they really wanted to take a right? It's like the
out of state license plate is a license for stupidity...
So you mean to say you think you're not driving like an ass by holding
up traffic at a roundabout?
You stopped and waited long enough for a guy to yell; then still
enough time for you to think about it and then go without violating
right of way. In fact the Corvette had enough room to go with you. So
either you're an extremely bad judge of vehicle speed or you drive
like an ass or both.
Now if you get out of your poseur car and into something appropriate
for your driving style (minivan) people in back of you will adjust
