And my friends and family always ask why I don't drive. Its because of idiots like this.What kind of dumb A$$ don't stop at a stop sign at a major highway???? I don't care if it is a kid. He is old enough to know better. But I guess he is one of those who just don't give a sh*$t. He caused it and didn't even get hurt. arrghh!!! But maybe now that he don't have a car, unless mommy and daddy buy him another, that will be one less idiot kid running about and down my road all night peeling out and sliding around. OK. I'll shut up now. But stuff like that really gets to me. Especialy when it is so close to home. A few more minutes and my man could have been involved in it but luckily I called him on his way home and had him make a stop.
I'll guess I 'll shut up now. Anyway.....good morning everyone. *Smiles*

The term "defensive driving" comes into play. You won't always be able to avoid an accident, but you can increase the odds by never trusting ANYONE. If they want it that bad, they can have it. Better my pride hurt than my body. Or those of my family. Driving is just about the most dangerous things we do. It's easy to get comfortable and forget the danger. Be careful out there folks!

Yep, i've driven like a grampa for decades and like it that way - "when i retired, so did my right foot". If drivers got this far without learning to care about themselves and passengers, they shouldn't expect an education from me. If they're in that much of a hurry, it tells me they just did a lousy job of managing their time and once a person demonstrates both stupidity and a lack of personal control, i WANT them in front of me where i can keep an eye on them. Besides lousy drivers make excellent deer sweepers. :)
