Almost a head on...
Thursday, February 21, 2008
I was driving my daughter home yesterday afternoon into Arroyo Hondo, a sub-division outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. There is a cattle guard as you enter. Suddenly a I saw a navy blue Jeep Cherokee, late 70's - early 80's coming directly at us IN THE AIR. I quickly manuvered to the dirt on the right of the roadway while the Jeep landed in my lane on one wheel. Amazingly the driver recovered from the loss of control. License Plate New Mexico 916-MKG.

Driver in a small maroon car NM license # FD A694 turned right at Constitution and Washington in Albuquerque cutting me off...my bicycle hit the car and we both hit the pavement. The driver just drove on! An eye witness (thank goodness) followed the car to get plate # and returned to give it to me and see if I was alright. How do I find the owner of this car?

Albuquerque driving rules...
Ladies and Gentleman these are tips on how to survive driving in Albuquerque.
First you must learn to pronounce the city name. It is "Ahlboo kehr keh" not "Al buh kirky" or some variation of that.
Juan Tabo is pronounced Huan Tah boh, San Pedro is Sawn Peh Droh, Candelaria is Cawn Deh Lah Ree Ah, etc.
Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. We have have our own version of traffic rules. . ."Hold on and pray".
There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Albuquerque. We all drive like that.
All directions start with, "Get on Central". . . which has no beginning and no end.
The morning rush hour is from 6 to 10. The evening rush hour is from 3 to 7. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning.
If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear ended, cussed out and possibly shot.
When you are the first one on the starting line, count to five when the light turns green before going to avoid crashing with all the drivers running the red light in cross-traffic.
Construction on Central is a way of life and a permanent form of entertainment. We had so much fun with that, we have added Montgomery/Montano and Lomas to the mix.
All unexplained sights are explained by the phrase, "Oh, we're in Rio Rancho."
If someone actually has their turn signal on, it is probably a factory defect.
Car horns are actually "Road Rage" indicators.
All old ladies with blue hair in Mercedes have the right of way. PERIOD.
Montgomery and Ellison. . . mysteriously change names as you cross I-25 (these are only a couple of examples).--------- If asking directions !
In SE or S part of town, you'll benefit from a working knowledge of Spanish.
If on Central or in Tijeras ditto the above. If you stop to ask
directions on Coors Blvd or S 4th, you'd better be armed.
A trip across town (east to west) will take a minimum of two hours, although many north/south passages have an unposted minimum speed of 75.
The minimum acceptable speed on North I-25 is 85. Anything less is considered downright sissy.
The East I-40 is our daily version of NASCAR. It also ends in Edgewood.
I-25 to Santa Fe is called "The Death Trap" for two reasons: "death" and "trap".
If you flip on your turn indicators expect the lanes beside you to close bumper-to-bumper.
If it's 100-degrees, Thanksgiving must be next weekend.
If it's 10-degrees and sleeting/snowing, the Fourth of July is around the corner.
If it's rained 6 inches in the last hour, and it is Fall, the Balloon
Fiesta just started.
If it is Fall, the Balloon Fiesta is going on.
If you go to the Fair, pay the $5.00 to park INSIDE Fair Park. Parking elsewhere could cost up to $2500 for damages, towing fees, parking tickets, etc. If some guy with a flag tries to get you to park in his 'yard', run over him.
All amusement parks, stadiums, arenas, race tracks, airports, etc., are conveniently located as far away from EVERYTHING as possible so as to allow for ample parking on grassy areas.
Salesman- In Albuquerque
With these simple rules in mind, you are now ready to drive in Albuquerque .
Please try and keep up.
Abuse of Handycapped Parking
Friday, February 09, 2007
"Abuse of Handycapped Parking" On Wednesday at 11:35AM While I was looking for a place to park (I am Handycapped & have my Placard) I noticed a very healthy young man who was parked in a Handycapped spot and DID NOT have a Placard, Even more so, Was the spitting image of health. He was picking up his Lunch Order at "Nothing But Noodles" at Wyoming & Academy. I only wish there was a way to issue folks like this a ticket! In closing I just wanted to Thank-you for making me walk the extra mile with my wrist crutches and addition PAIN so you would'nt have to! Hope you enjoyed your lunch!
My gratitude to: KissMyS&W and SL55 for their original comments and suggestions.
Other comments and suggestions would be appreciated!
Have you noticed this GUY?!?

Hey I'm glad you clicked here! My name is Craig
ill be your tour guide in today's game of "Who's the dipshit?" Our 1st contestant lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It might possibly be you. As a matter of fact it probably is. I bet you spend more than 3 hours on the computer a day. Meanwhile you drove around stoped at circle k grabbed a gatorade and thought " Who might be hiring today?" You soon became disgruntled, and noticed a truck you couldn't afford, first thought; let's report him! I quickly logged in platewire.com user name bitterbeaner, and released all sexual and finacial frustrations for the week! Thanks platewire.com,
Go Speed Racer.....Go!

JCC-620 This guy must think he is Bill Elliot, Darrel Waltrip or Dale Earnhardt rest his soul. This guys car is far from a Nascar super speed machine, but when you see this Teal-Blue convertable two door coupe w/black top, you would think he was at Talladega giving Ricky Bobby a run for his money. The way he drives he is either running from a bank robbery or his mommy. You really need driving lessons buddy. Maybe you should go to the Bondurant school of racing and get the hell off of the New Mexico roads. What a Mule!
Crazy Driver at Pizza Hut
Thursday, February 01, 2007
As my mom, sister and I were pulling into the parking lot at a local Pizza Hut a 2 door jeep with the plates HFX171 (NM), came racing around the corner and alomost caused my mom to hit them. They cut her off in the parking lot and quickly pullled into a parking space. The driver had no intention of stopping and looking at where he was going. My mom had to slam on her brakes to make sure that she did not hit them. This driver and passenger were both aware of the vehicle that we were in. They did not attempt to hault or yield us or any other drivers. Thank God that there were no customers walking out in the parking lot, because this driver would have surely hit them.

Ive got a dumba$$ to tell you all about! If I would've known about this site earlier I would have gotten this guys license plate number! But anyhow.....Im in the turning lane on Wyoming and Central waiting to turn North onto Wyoming. Like we all do at times, I got caught up in a day dream and the arrow turned green and due to my daydreaming I didn't notice. Well this guy behind me, instead of politely beeping his horn to wake me to get going, he blares on his horn! I start to go and as I start to move I see him in my rear view mirror ramming up onto my ass just inches away from my bumper! I wasn't in the mood to play games so I just went about my way thinking that it was all over in done with....but boy was I wrong! I come up to the light at Lomas and Wyoming. Im in the far left lane up against the turning lane. Pulling up beside me into the turning lane comes that same guy and in his passenger seat an older lady (Im guessing her to be his mom or grandma). As I look over he was all red with anger and was yelling at me. Unimpressed I flip him the bird and told him to F off. Well apparently I hurt his feelings (its amazing I hardly know this guy and I still had this huge affect on him!) because he took of his seat belt got out of his car and started heading over to me. Well Im not stupid...I know there are a lot of goonballs out there so I keep my self protected with a nice Smith and Wesson 9mm. I would hate to ever have to use it but I will if need be! So anyways as this dummy is heading over my way my hub grabs the gun and holds it up (not pointing it at anyone....(just letting this idiot know that he is walking towards the light and better turn his stupid self around!). At this time seeing the gun his poor passenger looked scared to death hollering NO! NO! (I felt sorry for her, I cant believe that dumba$$ was putting a loved ones life in danger over a green arrow and the finger!) Upon seeing the gun the guys eyes grew huge, he stopped in his tracks, turned around got back into his car and put his seat belt on.....but then started yelling at me again saying "I got one too!" pointing to his floor. Yeah right!! ROFLMAO!! What idiot would get out of his car to hound on someone with out a gun if he had one but then again what idiot would be in such a rage over what this guy was in a rage over? Something tells me he doesn't have much smarts about him. Anyhow apparently he wasn't as in as big of a hurry as he made himself out to be at the light this all originated at because his arrow turned green but he was still sitting there yelling at me.....I pointed out to him that his arrow was green and that he better go cause god forbid he doesn't go when the arrow turns green!! Im sure he is getting his in the end. Im guessing that his grandma/mom went home and told the family how he got a gun pulled on them for being a dumba$$ and Im sure they are reeming him good! By the way this guy looked to be late 40's early 50's. Hispanic or Italian. A scrawny bean pole with dark big fluffy hair (kind of looks like a wig) driving a white SUV Im thinking it was either a LandRover or a Toyota but just not sure. If you see this guy will you tell him hi and give him the finger for me Thanks!LOL
What a great idea!

I just heard about this on the news tonight and I went straight to my computer to find out more. I'm still freaked about a major road rage incident that happened right in front of me yesterday - I only wish I had the plates of the two goons who were yelling at each other, near a school crossing with children all over the place! It was frightening!
I think this is a very safe and creative way to get the word out there about unsafe and irrational driving behaviours. This is awesome. I'm telling everyone I know about this site. Keep it up!!!!
