Some Drivers

Im on my way to work this morning, and as I approach the toll plaza to get on the bridge, I notice this guy in a green Camaro behind me. Hes changing lanes quickly and this suv cuts him off. From my view point, it looked like the suv was going to take the front end of his car off. The Camaro guy gets in the far left lane and speeds ahead as much as he can (oh yeah, its raining and the roads are slick) only to almost hit the driver infront of him. Im getting a little scared now, because the next thing I see is him cutting back into my lane, fishtailing, starting to slide out of control. He somehow regained control of his car, before speeding again into the far right lane. We pass thru the tolls at the same time, and he takes off. Not much room, since 5 lanes merge into 2 within 200 feet of the toll plaza. I was just waiting for him to cause a major accident.


Is it English? Does it moo?

Good choice staying back from this loser..... all it takes is for him to slip up and you'll have a nice wreck on your hands. I don't understand people sometimes, especially in bad weather.....

Thumbs down Bad drivers...

There are some really stupid drivers out there. I experience them on a regular basis... especially in L.A. with these dumb-a$$es in their Mercedes.

What I dont understand are drivers who feel they must get ahead by ONE car length, at any cost. At least last night during my 2 1/2 hour commute home (normally 25 mins), people were pretty tollerant of one another. But this morning, that idiot in the Camaro...he could see there was no room to go anywhere...whats the logic aside from stupidity on this guy's part?
