Or causing it. i nearly nailed a school bus Tuesday morning, fucking N bound driver swung across my S bound lane right in front of me, I'd been asleep there would have been a pile up because I was doing the speed limit and there were 7 or 8 cars on my ass. He (she?) had a turning lane, abso-fucking-lutely no reason to swing into my lane. That's how it happens.
An Angel intervened.
Saw a lot of outlandish risk-taking on the road over the years
with various results - but never anything like that
Poor bastards...looks like a warzone.
You're right AS, some crazy drivers here. Had people fling themselves on the road in front of me without even looking to see if it was clear to do so, and don't get me started on the awful traffic situation in this town.
Buildings, transformer boxes, bushes and trees keep you from seeing traffic you're supposed to yield the right-of-way to.
Stop lights everywhere they don't need them, and NONE at the busiest intersection in town. The traffic engineer here must work for the local body shop lobby.
Bloody traffic lights more about prestige than actual functionality.
Yes the Fog was extremely dense yesterday morning. I travel that road all the time going back and forth to Louisiana. It's good interstate highway.
