capt'n slim (3/20/2010)i will have to agree with the idiots. Thursday Two dodge Dakotas kept pulling in front of each other and slamming on brakes not just for a second i'm talking smoking tires comming to a screeching hault on hwy 90 @ copter Rd. They did this about 6 times and nearly wrapped me up in them twice. Thursday Night as i was comming over the 90 bride to Pace Some idiot in the left lane decided it would be funny to hang out there and go slower and slower and slower needless to say I am not the one to mess with on the road, especially in the left lane they acted like an idiot to the wrong person, because now they have a busted out passenger window. you would be amazed @ what damage a projectile at 60 mph can do to glass. (oh yea i know its illegal to sling things out the window but it would have been a lot worse had cuz caused me to hit him)


If I am reading your post correctly, you threw something out the window and busted their window because they weren't going fast enough in the left hand lane ? I drive that stretch of road everyday and I can guarantee you that behavior like that can get you killed. You better cool your jets. It's not worth it.



Now, if I were the person with the busted window and saw this post, I would bring it to the attention of the police who would find out who you are. You would then be in more trouble than you can imagine.


+1



The speed limit is 55mph, so you were not only speeding since you admitted the projectile was doing 60mph but you also did this was also done b/c the "other" guy wasn't going fast enough.



What is SO important to you that it is more important than me getting home safe to my family? What?

Anybody remember how many years the guy that shot the flare at the mother/daughter on Bayou Blvd got ? I can't remember exactly but it was several. Something like 10. Same thing here.

And if you want to see some idiot drivers, take the drive between here and Panama City like I did this weekend. Spring breakers do not use good judgment.

I knew it wouldnt take long for someone to take up for the ones with no respect for anyone to show up. If you drive like a fool, You should be treated as such. Thats whyIdrive old stuff around. Want to play? OK! If nothing is done to these careless people, nothing will happen. if you dont atleast blow the horn& flip them off, They'll be there tomorrow to do it again. If your scared to do anything you feel is right,you wont make it far in this Legal oriented world depending on them to help you.When they show up, Its us their interested in, Not the perp.

I'm not folllowing your post. Are you saying that it's perfectly alright to throw something at a car and bust out his window because he's driving the speed limit in the left hand lane ? You drive an old car so that you can play demolition derby on the highway ? Please clarify.

I also drive an old truck, and for good reason. If it gets hit (again) at least I am not out alot of money, and that old truck holds up pretty good to getting hit. I should know. It has been TOTALED OUT twice, and HIT 4 times since I have owned it.

I was in it both times it was totaled.

<U>First time</U> was in Andalusia. Had a guy born in 1900 hit me when he got scared and hit the gas pedal coming out of the IGA parking lot. That was 1996. Took me across 2 lanes of traffic and was still burning tires, pushing on my truck when I came to a stop. I twisted the arm of the insurance company to get it fixed.:takephoto

<U>Second time</U> was in Auburn. A DUI driver hit me in the driversside on a blind intersection going 80-90 mph. I had to fix it myself that time. Bought a second truck just for parts. Sued the guy in court, and learned a valuable lesson. <U>Court does not have anything to do about right/wrong or truth/lie, its all about how good your lawyer is.</U> My poor little retainer lawyer lost to a duo of lawyers from birmingham who were in a big firm, and their names appeared at the FRONT of the lawfirm name.....:reallycrying

Other 2 times, the truck was backed into by wives of friends.:doh

Still drive it EVERY DAY!:usaflag

Moral of this is that it has made me EXTREMELY defensive in my driving. I have never hit anybody else, but somehow I wound up in some major wrecks despite not doing anything wrong.

<U>It is not worth it, no matter how much someone pisses you off, to ever get in a wreck.</U>

EVER!!!

Please, lets all drive safe, courteous, and defensively. That way we all make it home to our families.......

Europeans drive way better than Americans. Over there the sign that says "Slower Traffic Keep Right" is actually followed. Keep in mind the sign doesn't read "If Your Not Doing The Speed Limit Keep Right", it says "Slower Traffic Keep Right". This rule is in place to keep traffic flowing and not cause a backlog of traffic because one guy in the left lane decides he wants to drive the same speed as the guy in the right lane. The road has two lanes for a reason, what point is it to have two lanes if two cars decided to drive side by side for miles on end and not let anyone pass them? I wish LE's could or would issue tickets for those who ride in the left lane without passing, a ticket should be issued for impeding the flow of traffic.:banghead

People for the most part followSlower Traffic Keep Right ruleon the Interstates but on HWY 98they're oblivious to it.Stuck driving HWY 98 everyday to get to and from work is thereason I am going to sell my house West of Hurlburt Field and move into Fort Walton Beach City limits, at least there I have other routes I can take to work besides HWY 98. When there is a wreck it sometimes take me more than 2 hours to go 6 miles, that's crazy. I've wasted a lot of time waiting for wrecks to clear on HWY 98, time to move!:doh

No, Its not alright to do that when an Innocent person say riding in the idiots car gets hit or someone elses car gets hit. If you dont let these idiots know what thier doing is wrong, They will keep doing it. I had a girl in a t-bird ram me 1 time after I payed her back for not letting me over 1 day. When I wouldnt let her over, She ramend in the back bumber crushing her 24 jeff gordon tag! Boy was that funny! I gave her the bird, Said Gordon Sucks!:shedevil
