Morning rant!!! :x
« on: July 21, 2006, 02:05:01 PM »
If you guessed drivers, you are right!  Twice within the last 24 hours I have had to lay on my horn and swerve out of the way of cars changing lanes without using their turn signals or even looking.  I was going home yesterday afternoon on Broadway, just north of I-25 and a chevy pickup just came over like a grazing cow and eventhough I honked at him, he could not be bothered.  This monring I was on 6th avenue just before the I-25 underpass and this guy in a toyota sedan just came over, again no signal or looking.  I honked at him and he swerved back and cranked his head around.  I think I woke him up or somthing.  I am just glad that I am 2 for 2 and was alert enough to take action.  I know my car is just a car, but I think I would seriously consider hurting someone if my baby was damaged.

The funny thing is, that if a driver puts their turn signal on, I will slow down and let them in.  My take on this is that their car must have had the turn signal as an option when they bought the car and they decided to pass getting it. :roll:

I too have had two instances similar to this when in my car.  Suprisingly I have yet to go through them on the new motorcycle.  Go figure...

I've had a few on the BMW, but my horn is so freaking lound on that thing it scares the drivers pretty well. Not to mention a shaking of the fist helps to let them know what they did was unacceptable.

I installed two 120 dB Hella Supertone horns behind my grille for all those clueless idiots.

If the driver is really bad and on the highway, I sometimes call *CSP (Colorado State Patrol) on my cell phone and report the person's driving to the police.  That usually gets the message across -- especially now since the police has a new fleet of stealthy black Plymouth Chargers to catch aggressive and careless drivers.
