    How about #$$HOLE RAGE?

    So, really just how big an #$$hole are you? You drive down the right side of the line of traffic going straight through the light on Water street because at 4:10 pm it's long and the turning lane (right) is short. And you arrive at the space I've left between me on my motorcycle and the Toyota ahead of me and decide that I've left that space just so you can pull in and you do. About 1/2 way. So you're stopped at an angle, half in the straight through lane, half in the right turn lane, occupying the space in front of me. I decide to not just let it pass and I roll up beside your rolled down window and say

    "Excuse me, do you think I'm waiting for a bus here?"

    "WHY ARE YOU.... YOU LEFT ALL THAT SPACE.... WHAT IS YOUR....." at which time your female passenger starts beeping the horn and screaming at the top of her skag-faced lungs.

    "DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR BEHIND ME DOESN'T STOP AND PUSHES......"

    {more skag faced beeping and screaming, more useless profanity from you as you point to the children in the back of the car....}

    {I repeat} "DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE CAR BEHIND ME DOESN'T STOP AND PUSHES ME INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME?? I DIE!!!"

    "JUST GO. GO!" with more profanity from your skag-faced lady friend. Your kids must be proud.

    Sounds like that group is chronically stupid. like the sign says, you can't fix stupid and they won't let you beat it into a stupor.

    Sadly, there is nothing to be done for that kind of brainless twaddle. Try to stay as far from them as you can and pray that when they do have a "life altering" wreck that they don't take anyone else with them.

    Either that or move to BFE-FOL where there are fewer...oh, crap, there's more per capita of them here than where I left.... At least I can see them coming from farther away.

    "skag-faced lungs" that is just great!

    You know, this story just proves that many people "dumb down" when they get in a car.
    What is it going to take to change that? We will never get rid of all of it, but we should be able to decrease it to some extent. Maybe TV and magazine adds from the MSF. Something like they did a few years ago for drunk drivers.

    Hey xp8103,

    Do you think they were honking the horn and screaming at the top of their lungs because you scared them?

    After all you are just like me and every other MOA member. We are biker trash and all we want to do is cause problems for everyone that does not ride. To them, we all lane split and take up their parking spots. We are lower than snake sh*t. Did you forget that all bikers are filth and scum?

    It would be fun to have a seat at their dinner table and hear what they say about today.

    There is a good chance that this is a standard driving practice for the people in the car. Your mentioning this to them catches them completely off guard and is seen by them as the first part of the problem. It's easier on everybody if you let it go and be careful. IMO most of the time, it's too late to retrain people to drive more courteous as they think they're doing just fine now.

    Getting a license in the states is too easy and too cheap. If folks had to shell out a grand to get one maybe they'd value the privilege more. Of course then a politician would just want to subsidize it so it'd be fair for everyone. I hate dealing with ignorance on the road but unfortunately being on the smaller vehicle I let it go and hope a cop sees it. Bad drivers tend to be a poor judge of distance IMO.

    As Paul said above, bad drivers tend to be bad judges of most things which leads to further bad judgement and a deteriorating life and pain. (imagine Yoda here)

    In many places - say NYC, to use one example, it is common practice to pull up through any space possible, then wedge into even the tiniest opening. In other parts of the world, not only some but all of the people recognize no such thing as a line nor of order. ( Ever been to Rome, Italy, or Mexico City, or Saigon? )

    Yet we here in the US expect that folks will extend the so called courtesies that we might extend ourselves, unto others. Sorry, it isn't always going to be so. If you REALLY don't want someone squeezing into any space in front of you then do not leave one.

    OTOH, folks in general just don't give two hoots about anyone except themselves. As with cell phone talkers, make-up appliers, reading or otherwise distracted drivers, I simply expect what used to be the unexpected ( now the new norm ) and carry on.

    Cheers!

    I've done a little in Europe and Mexico.
    In Europe, they do have to pay big bucks and go to school, so while I felt a little intimidated at first, I quickly discovered that most of them were actually much better drivers than what the western hemisphere tolerates.
    But I did actually have to avoid a gal in her Mercedes, on the Stelvio, talking on her cell phone!

    Question Dear LEO's

    While we all appreciate your work, your help, and your willingness to put yourselves in danger on our behalf, I'm curious.

    I've been commuting on the tollway recently and several miles are under construction with all the typicals; shifting lanes, narrowed lanes, edge traps, trucks entering and exiting, blindingly bright work lights at night, ultra-confused cagers etc.

    Last night about 11:00 pm as i approached the "confusing" transition lane from I 88 (where there was a state trooper parked, hiding to catch speeders), to NB 294...I say confusing because it's only marked with four or five huge lighted signs a mile in advance, and gigantic painted signs on the pavement. Needless to say, most drivers are totally confused here daily. As I approached the NB ramp I slowed considerably because iknew there was an edge trap, and a construction speed limit, and there were three cars in front of me; two ahead of me in the left (NB) lane and one in the right (SB) lane. The guy in the right lane suddenly swerved Left and stopped in between the pylons near , but not actually in the left lane. The two other cars, rather than simply going past, chose to stop in the middle of the tollway. I ran onto the very small shoulder and rather abruptly stopped to avoid their antics. It was easy to anticipate that there'd be stupidity happening there. it happens there all the time with or w/o construction.

    As i recovered and passed them, I continued NB and once i passed the construction zone, the traffic was very light, but a few miles later, there was another trooper hiding in the dark just behind one of the slight rises in the roadway, trying to catch speeders.

    Here's my Q: Really? Really?

    I really don't intend to be disrespectful, but if you read these posts or drive or ride you surely must see the truly weird, waaaaay unacceptably stupid and dangerous antics of drivers everywhere. Why is it that speeding is the only one that gets your attention? Is it because it's the only one you can prove in court? Or the easiest?

    Wouldn't it be even easier to just go park by the trouble instead of waiting for it to chance by you?

    We constantly see lots of people texting, eating while texting, drinking, texting and drinking, getting stuff off the passenger seat, dawdling in the L lane, forcing other texters to pass on the right, putting on their pantyhose while texting ...everything but driving..
