Dear stupid driver
« on: September 06, 2008, 03:08:07 AM »
Dear driver of the black B5 Audi A4 that passed me on 34 this evening;
I have no idea what you were thinking when you drove the way you did past me. You are the most reckless driver I have ever seen. Your car, with its oh so special custom license plate "AUDIHRE" and 16in stock wheels was swerving in and out of traffic so recklessly, I was amazed you did not hit anyone, especially myself and my girlfriend. I know it must be amazing that you, a young kid, is driving an Audi and that your friends who were riding along must be impressed, but you are not a professional driver. Your driving was wreckless enough that I actually looked for you in town so that we might have a chat. You rode close enough to my boot that I could see the number of people in your car (3), along with your facial and hand gestures towards me as I would not speed up. The speed limit, posted as 65, might have been too slow for you, but to ride as close as you did was idiotic. Then your "ricer fly by" was anything but impressive and just allowed me to look into your untinted windows and see your face, and yes I remember what you and your passengers look like with your crooked hats and silly looks on your faces. So here is my promise to you. If I see you in town, on the road, or parked in a parking lot, I will find you to have a talk with you. I will let you know exactly what I think and practice my freedom of speech. And god forbid you be on the road with me again, endangering my life or my girlfriends. I will make you regret such action for a long time. I feel that this is a fair warning right now as I like to think I am a fair individual. I thank you for your time and hope you might learn from this warning.

Richard

If you've got the plate and a description (which it sounds like you do), report them to the PD. Maybe they'll wise up before they hurt someone on the road.

Unfortunately, Greeley PD is not exactly the greatest when it comes to such situations.  I had a guy swerving at me the other week trying to hit me and I was freaking out with 911.  We passed a cop and he just sat there.

Agreed. Escalate with CSP and get these idiots off the road. While having a talk with them might seem appealing at the time, curbside justice is not the best idea.

Being a former MP, I understand curbside justice is not the right path.  And trust me, I have called CSP enough to actually get the same dispatcher enough times she remembered me.  While CSP is very active on I-25 and such major highways, I have never been satisified when calling in drunk drivers/reckless drivers/truck on fire while on 34.  My purpose of the letter, be it that I was angry, is a true warning to the driver in case he might visit any of the forums.
