What Would You Do?

Friday, August 17, 2012


 If you read one of my recent wires, you will see my complaint about the driver of a black Challenger at Wal-Mart in Brooklyn, Ohio.

Anyway, if anyone's interested, I'll go into a little more detail about the incident. I was waiting to turn north (right) onto Tiedeman Rd. around 5:15 PM. Anyone who lives in the Cleveland area knows how busy Tiedeman is at rush hour. It's just a matter of being patient and waiting for a gap in traffic.

Why The Hurry???

Thursday, May 17, 2012


  Don't you just hate when you see people driving that are reckless drivers or deserve a ticket and there isn't one cop in sight, but when you are driving and following all laws, they are everywhere. Today I was driving to work. I was going east on Hummel Road towards 130th. The speed limit on Hummel is 25mph. A woman in a small black car catches up to me and is practically on my ass and she suddenly decides to pass me by driving on the wrong s

Traffic now increases and there are other cars between us. I call 911 and they transfer me to th

A total crazy arrogant driver

Thursday, February 09, 2012

carlos slewster

Feb 9th, and several other days before this... 161 West from Columbus to New Albany Exit, black car, heavy tinted windows driving like a complete idiot. Weaving in and around traffic, cutting them off to get off New Albany exit. Even drove on the edge of the road to get around one car. Seen this idiot several times and again today. His lic plate is EQP5430. Stay completely away from this jerk. I would say he is either a cop, a cops brother, or completely crazy and not afraid of killing someone.

Driver Who Almost Hit Me While Turnig Left on Red!

Sunday, October 09, 2011


 I just almost had an accident in my new vehicle that I spent almost all my savings on. I was in the process of turning right onto 30th St. in Newark, Ohio because my light had turned green. Some asshole in a red car with the license plate number FEB 9086 decided to turn left onto the same street on a red light. I had to slam on my brakes and he just kept barreling through. I followed him and wrote down the license plate number. I was so pissed. Can no on

Dangerous Driver

Friday, April 15, 2011


I was driving on 77 South on April 13th at approximately 3:00 pm when a driver in a Blue Civic car license plate EDA9796 decided to change lanes without looking and almost hit me. I laid on the horn, but the driver couldn't care less. It was as if the driver was either deaf or just couldn't care. The driver never looked to see if there was another car on the left hand side before changing lanes. The driver then decided to speed up, so I was unable to even look at the driver. This person nee

Dangerous Semi

Monday, January 17, 2011


I was headed southbound on I-71 tonight in the rain. I was slowed by the vehicle in front of me who was going around 57. I was distraught when a Semi-truck proceeded to tailgate me...I estimate that the semi was about 5 feet from the rear of my car. As soon as there was an opening in the lane to the left, the truck proceeded to pass. The trailer had almost cleared my car (it was even with the front wheels of my vehicle) when the semi signaled and pulled into my lane (without allowing time for m

  I was on W Dodridge St. in Columbus, heading toward 315. I started to slow down for the red light at Olentangy River Rd. when a black Suburban with license plate MR G COX pulled out from behind me and cut me off. I could understand being in the wrong lane and needing to quickly switch, even if it is annoying, but passing me as we're stopping at a red light? That doesn't even make any sense, on top of being incredibly selfish and dangerous!

Please let me start out by saying that I know I am not a perfect driver. We all do stupid things while behind the wheel. Having said that, I would like to vent a little. I drive a tractor-trailer around central ohio 5 days a week. I don't know if some drivers do not understand what it takes to manouver a big rig or if they just don't value their lives. Cutting off an 18 wheeler is not the smartest thing to do. It takes twice as long for me to stop as it does a 4 wheeled vehicle. A

Beware of the blonde lady driving a black/charcoal Dodge Nitro 2010, OH licence plate beginning with ETW. This lady is one of the most dangerous, insane drivers I have ever seen on the road. This isn't a one time event - for the past 5 years I have had to deal with her. This morning was just the first time she nearly took my front end off cutting between me and another car. She typically will just tailgate, weaving back and forth until you are forced to change lanes. I believe she used to drive

Tailgater I-75 S. FAZ5758

Wednesday, September 22, 2010


 Um, yeah. So, according to Ohio law, if the person in front of you slows down or stops suddenly and you hit them, you will be cited for unassured clear distance. So stop following people so close that you could give them an oil change. Especially when the person in front of you is going 5 miles over the speed limit to begin with in an area known for being heavily patrolled by state troopers.
