Default freak'n driver's have death wishes . . .

driving home tonight traffic is coming to an absolute stand still in a 55 mph zone. Backed up 1/2-3/4 mile each direction. Freak'n people are stopped on the shoulders AND in both traffic lanes watching a fk'n bald eagle munch on a dead deer carcass (and not even the one I hit this morning). You aholes, get out of the road and move your damn cars. Was kind of hoping one of them would get hit so the poor bird would at least have some fresh meat to tear into . . .

I go mental up here when 'good samartians' stop to let gaggles of geese walk across cross the road. The motherfuggers can fly, man, **** them. I honk the horn and drive right at them till they get out of the way.

There was a woman in Quebec afew years ago stopped on the highway to let some ducks cross and she got rear-ended by a motorcycle and the driver and his daughter both died. They charged her with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and she did jail time.

It's the new normal, people stop for everything.... 1.5 mile back up - sat, 2 lane (each way) highway, guy changing a tire on a van. He was at least 10 feet off the highway deep into the shoulder.

Woman down the block last year hit a tree avoiding a squirrel.

If Anything happens, the road stops, forget it if it rains - that is the end of the world...

Stopped watching an eagle? I would have been irate. This happened to me yesterday: Traffic stopped on interstate with a concrete wall divider between 3 lanes each way. Don't know why they were stopped but after 15 minutes of not moving another driver and I turn around and go the wrong way on the interstate emergency lane in hopes of getting back to a place where the concrete divider stops so we could get back on our side of the road lol. Well a KY state trooper had other ideas. No ticket but he was not happy. After we tried this I saw several other vehicles try it. The trooper just laid back behind the stopped cars and waited in anyone trying to do what we tried to do.

Sounds just about right, The trooper did nothing to mitigate the hazard, just waited for reasonable people to clear the roadblock.

We have brilliant AIMERS in out area that stops in the middle of a traffic lane to permit oncoming drivers to do a left turn in front of them.

There are a lot of ignorant drivers out there. Surprised there wasn’t a wreck.
