  • Driver was zipping in and out of traffic, going way too fast on local lanes of WB I96 in a work zone around M39. Cut me off and almost crashed into my car in doing so, then proceeded to cut others off as he sped off. Sorry, jackass, but the laws apply to you, too. It's reduced speed on local lanes and watch where you're going at any time. Were you drunk or just dumb?

    Question   Thursday, April 17, 2014

     Does anyone know why there are often 2 black SUVs (Chevy's usually) with blacked out windows who drive like maniacs on GW parkway NB from Alexandria into points north or into DC? They are always in tandem, one right behind the other. It's almost scary how they weave through traffic together. They must be protecting someone? One could never get in between them for sure because the trailing SUV is so close to the first one, no one COULD get between them even if they had to.

     Hey all you in Northern Va - I am seeing more and more "Don't Tread On Me" plates! YAY! Wave! I drive a red Jeep so I'm used to waving, but one early morning 2 trucks drove by, both waving to me! Makes me feel like I'm not the only one. :-) Wave, peace sign or whatever. Matters not. The only place I see a higher amount of these plates is at the Chantilly gun show coming up soon!

     What is it with drivers in Plymouth who can't wait their turn to turn left onto Ann Arbor Road? If you're in a driveway or on General Street, like this moron in a BLUE  SUV about 3:15 this afternoon, oncoming traffic on EB Ann Arbor Road has the right of way. If I'd sped up, the crash would've been his fault. C'mon folks, let's stop being so damn greedy and impatient. and to the moron in the cream Villager who had to squeeze in front of my car on I96 west of Davison, you got honked and yelled at because you were being a selfish dick. Grow up and watch where you're going. Sh$thead. There wasn't room for you. Shut up and grow up.

    Speed Racer   Friday, December 06, 2013

    Going over the Mass Ave Bridge at 11:30 am today, and I'm doing the speed limit, and some speed racer pulls up so close to me he almost hits me, and then he speeds over into the left lane, cutting off the truck in that lane, and flies by me doing about 50 (speed limit is 30 mph), I was so hoping the cops were at the bottom of that hill today. License plate number 69R-R58, Black sports car.

    People who would come in 3rd in a 2 horse race.........   Thursday, March 14, 2013

    What is it with people who can't stand to wait 3 seconds while someone in front of them is making a turn.....I mean they'll literally drive over the double yellow lines and over someone's lawn to avoid having to wait a couple of seconds......are we that impatient as a society or do people think their lives are so important that they need to put someone else's at risk? Come on folks......HB

    Tossing Cigarettes   Tuesday, February 05, 2013

    Try this topic... tossing cigarettes

    Vehicle: Chevy Colorado
    Color: Black
    Location: Pensacola, FL


    A few days ago, I saw a Navy Chief toss a cigarette out the window while at a traffic light.

    1. Who thinks that is not a worthwhile flag here and who thinks it is bad enough to be mentioned? Is is real littering or bad enough to start a fire in the right circumstances OR it is not a serious situation.

    2. Who thinks that I should not mention that he is a Navy Chief? I do respect the US military (I was one) but since he was in uniform and had Navy stickers with the Chief symbol, it was plain that he was not concerned to be identified with the Navy while tossing the cigarette out on the street.

    Some wanted a good discussion. Others have left because of trolls. We'll see if we get a mature discussion or a insult match.

    Here is an idea...   Thursday, November 22, 2012

    Ban the user pisseddriver26, or take this site down.  Taking neither of these actions is incompatible with rational thinking.
