you have hit a soft spot with me on this one....as i do believe i have found one of the king of the a-hole states for bad drivers......Michigan.
I moved to michigan from california...and most people think california drivers are bad...check this out.
2 weeks after i got here....2 WEEKS!--I was run off the road, literally, twice, for not going fast enough for the dumb F**ks behind me. I was doing 80
in a 70, passin the OBVIOUSLY slower cars in the right lane doing 70 and below...
the first time in this case was when i was passing a bunch of vehicles in the right lane... a bus, and two semi's were in the right lane, with about
4 cars in front of me in the left. we were going 80-85 (i'm used to cali's 75mph spd lmt.)--when some guy in a pickup came up on my butt like i was
standing still, after flashing his lights twice, and honking his horn, to which i had no where to go, or could go no faster, he cut off the semi to my
right and squeezed in between him and the bus, after coming up right beside me, i looked over at him to see the jerk*ff that was driving like a moron,
and he simply smiled, and pushed me off the road, and took my place on the road...Now, if i was driving my 74 chevy dually, i would have taken him out
and let him hit me, but i was driving my 30k showcar to a carshow about an hour away.....so i obviously didn't want to crash, and he knew it. I was
after which he just sped off at over 100 and EXITED 3 MILES UP THE ROAD!!:bnghd:
The second time was at a main intersection in grand rapids (where i live in mi.) 4 mexicans in a ford escort crossed 3 lanes and into the turn lane
right in front of where i was turning into the left turn lane. to which they immediately stomped on the brakes to avoid hitting the car that was only
2 car lengths in front of me. NO TURN SIGNALS...big suprise. I honked at them, and then they proceeded to follow me into the parking lot and all four
of them jumped out and tried to pull some "tough guy gang banter" wanting to jump ME for driving crazy....well, the great part to this story is that
the guy in front of me also pulled into the parking lot (coincidently) and got out of the truck...apparently, this guy was a body builder or a
railroad builder or something...because it looked like he could bench press my honda. needless to say, they got in their car and left...
overall, if i have any word of warning, NEVER, EVER go to chicago in a car...take the bus or train and hope for the best. they are in the process of
erecting a highway/freeway camera speedtrap system. I had to go there on buisness a few months ago, and never want to go again. there were people
doing over 90 in a 45mph construction zone
all the while, there were people workin on the shoulder...illinois plans on implementing a $1,000 fine and i think impounding your car on the second
offense, as well as taking your liscense for a year. i'd say they are gonna clean up....and hopefully use it to finish the god forsaken road
construction that has taken years to get half way done...but that's another post..
ahhhh....i feel so much better...later!
