LOL you must be in Florida. I used to live down by Cocoa Beach and this is EXACTLY what you described. I would absolutely REFUSE to drive on I-4 through Orlando because of how people would drive. Even the tiny, two lane, back road I would drive to and from work was full of retarded drivers. That same road had a teen on a bicycle get killed because some tourist from New York, was going 80 in a 45 mph zone. (They gave the speed details in the newspaper the next day) I had to drive past the accident on my way home from work and it was BAD, let's just put it that way.
On a personal note, I told my husband and kids that if I ever got to where I couldn't drive to PLEASE tell me and I will IMMEDIATELY stop driving. I wouldn't want to be responsible for an accident that could have been avoided if I just swallowed my pride a little.

Yes. write that book mblah. You could title it...
Chronicles of the Q-Tip Highway....
That's what we call them here, in my neck of the woods. They look like Q-Tips driving from behind...all you can see it the tippy-top of a white head over the steering wheel;...

I had a very similiar incident a bit ago during the Christmas rush. The 'lil old lady just didn't run a stop sign but actually speed up when I was crossing. I jumped back with the cart but she still hit it. So I just pressed the cart into her car (A Cadillac) as she went by scratching it all down the side to the metal.
She never stopped.
I had another old lady pull a pistol on me once when she said I took her parking space. She wasn't even in the lane when I pulled in. I pulled my cell and told her I was calling the police. She took off swearing a blue streak.
There must be something in the water here.
