    Road Rage   Friday, November 14, 2014

    on Fri 11/14/14, driving down 5th St in Cambridge, MA, waiting for traffic to pass me on Binney St., so I can make the turn onto that road! Overly excited female behind me starts laying on her horn, and hand signaling to me to turn however, there was oil tanker coming down the road, so really lady? Now she gets irate, and goes around me to get a move on, only to run into traffic in that lane, tries to then cut in front of me, nearly hitting me, now there are people in the crosswalk so I stop, she almost slams into me again, her passenger sitting next to her laughing, like the whole thing is a joke! After going through the light I moved over to the right hand lane, she sped by me only to sit in traffic further ahead. Funny, but I turned right, took the shortcut, and when I came around to Mass Ave I could see her still sitting at the light that she had to hurry up and get to. Her plate number is 347HD9, MA. She needs some serious driving lessons and medication to calm her down before she actually kills someone. Oh, did I mention she was driving an SUV, and I'm driving a small Chevy Aveo.


    Parking spot stealer   Wednesday, September 17, 2014

      Mazda, California plate 6LIW021, in Lake Tahoe. We were behind this Asshole in a parking lot, he passed the spot we ended up waiting for, because we saw the people coming to their car. When the car pulled out, he backed his car into the spot we were waiting for, cutting us off. We parked elsewhere, but I came back and took pictures of his backed in car. Looking for other places to post these.


    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.


    Support   Thursday, April 17, 2014

     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.

    253 UYO reckless BMW Santa clara   Tuesday, April 16, 2013

    Blue BMW SUV with Washington State license tag 253 UYO just missed running over a pedestrian in a crosswalk by the Santa Clara University campus. Female, blond, early 20s was behind the wheel and took the turn from The Alameda onto El Camino Real at 30mph plus.


    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.
