Good for these guys! I have been so close to being run over because I don't drive like a person with a death wish. When I worked in law enforcement I worked an accident where a 16 year old ran over a 12 year old on a bicycle and killed him. An hour later the 16 year old an his dad came to the station. His dad asked me what happened. As I was going through the scenario, the dad, a Marine major, went off on me! I couldn't believe it. He came to my house the next day to apologize, but it was too late. That made a real impression on me.

Between the ones driving 40mph and the ones doing 90 this highway is the most dangerous I've ever seen...and when it rains it is ten times worse what with the ones flying around people so they can be in front and not get water on their windshields
