Road rage!!

Sunday, June 03, 2012


I was getting off of I-14 onto I-205 north when a old white dodge pickup started tail gating me and then quickly changed lanes to be behind the person next to me. The dodge tailgated that car as the 2 lanes became one forcing me to slam on my brakes and vear into the side median. If I hadn't swerved, I would have been in a HUGE accident. This drive is not safe at all!

  Hi, I am a Gig Harbor resident who is concerned about the lack of attention to the law. At an intersection just down the road from my house, and 2 schools, is a 4 way stop that no one seems to obey. (Unless they have to!) I have reported it to police and had an interview (shown below) on KIRO news 7 following a skateboarder accident that happened right in front of my eyes two weeks ago. I made this You Tube video comical so that it h

 A lady in a white VW tailgated me from the moment we left the school all the way until i turned off to my road to get to my house. She was probably about 2 or 3 feet away from the back of my bumper at all times unless we were at a stop sign, then she was about 6inches from the back of my car. I was going the speedlimit and there were other vehicles in front of me so its like she had a reason to do it. Just in general, she's a horrible driver, freakin tee

I see it, but I don't believe it.

Monday, October 03, 2011


I didn't take down the license plate so this is where I'll vent my shock and amusement about a clueless driver. It was Sunday night in Seattle along South Lake Union. I was coming up on a red light and an old, faded van that was already at the intersection was stopped halfway onto the crosswalk -- but it was the back half! The front half of the van was in the intersection! Fortunately for him or her there was no crossing traffic so no one was being bl

Typical Little Man Syndrom

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


May 17th, 2011, Washington vehicle bearing B30422R is a VERY AGGRESSIVE DRIVER and out of control with a deep anger issue. Best part...I got it all on video (and he knows it, yet he couldn't control himself).

While driving on I-5 going North over the bridge, he merged into traffic and began tailgating me badly. I couldn't speed up as traffic was going slow during rush hour. I was concerned, so I slowed down to let him pass (all the while video taping)

Blond female

 The lady who drives Washington plate # 547WNG, a dark blue Volvo needs to learn and understand the laws while she is driving.  Here she is driving northbound from Portland Oregon to Vancouver Washington in the carpool lane which is suppose to be for 2 or more people per car.  She is alone.  Changed lanes a few times without using her turn signals.  Maybe Volvo doesn't equip their cars with that option any longer?  Ha!  She a

This driver was weaving in and out trying to get ahead during congestive traffic conditions. I see her approaching in the rear view and I just like to let people like that go by, so they're far away from me. But she didn't she stayed on my tail because no one else would let her in and nearly hit me everytime I stopped at a light. To top it, her music was so lound it vibrated my windows and of course it's irritating. I didn't want to hear anything.

Stop Signs Don't Apply to Everyone...

Monday, July 20, 2009


 Stop signs apparently don't apply to everyone... I guess. While driving on NE 99 Street today in Vancouver, WA, a woman in a Ford Explorer, plates 168-NZR, decided to not only almost hit and killed the pedestrian on the sidewalk as she blew a stop sign, but she almost killed me and a car that was already stopped in front of her waiting to pull out. She got very upset when I honked at her. WOW! I'm sorry to be so rude, ma'am! Your carele
