DDD 2009



I was driving home from skiing with my buddy on route 8 south.  I was cruising doing 70-75 in the fast lane. With very very light traffic. Aka: 1 -5 cars In slow lane for every 10 minutes of driving.

            Next thing I know this silver/tan minivan comes hauling up from behind. And rides my rear end close enough that if I opened my trunk while driving he couldn’t see ahead of him.

            There was a car on my right so instead of pulling to the right I sped up quite a bit and gave him some space.  He pulled into the right lane. Got along side of me, and pretended to swipe me off the road multiple times.  He was in his 30/40s,  There was a Valentine Laser detector on his dash and a suicide knob on his steering wheel.

            Scared I sped up to get away from this maniac before he caused me to go off the road. He would speed up and do it again, so I slowed down to 40’s until he finally left.  Then my friend in the passenger seat wrote his plate number down. And called the state police and reported him.

            People in minivans should not need a laser detector, suicide knob or physically be able to go more than 75mph…. I didn’t even see if he had kids….
