Let me take some time to you talk about some of the idiot drivers that are out on the road. Back about a week ago there was a fairly bad rain and wind storm averaging over an inch an hour of very heavy rain with extremely strong winds. I am traveling home in the highway and that's when the close encounters of the idiot kind began.
Idiot #1: Billy Badass in his lifted Dodge truck with extremely over-sized tires felt as if he owned the road and was indestructible not only did he ride my ass until I moved over he needed to put the hammer down and top out his truck at over 100mph until his taillights vanished into the night up the road. I can understand wanting to get somewhere in a hurry but there is no real need to do that speed in that kind of weather (hard to see in front of you) and pass anything and everything just because you think you are the king of the road.
Idiot #2: Mini Van Stan in another Dodge vehicle. Not only was he also speeding at over 100 mph with what I hope would be an empty van and nobody besides him in it. He was speeding on at least two doughnut tires. I really doubt any doughnut tire is Z rated for high speed nore able to tread out water properly. It is people like this who hydroplane over every lane of traffic and cause piles and or kill many people.
Idiot #3 Pick a lane Pete. This was probably the biggest idiot of them all, one who almost killed himself right in front of me. I was getting off at the exit and they were too or so it seemed. They were kind of in between the exit lane and the travel lane. Mind you it is 1am so it is very dark and with the heavy rain you could barely see. He continued on his route until about 20 feet from the exit sign almost plowing right into it before veering sharply back into the travel lane.
This was just a quick rant displaying some of the idiots out there. If you are one of these types of people SLOW DOWN. Getting there 1 minute earlier in a rain storm isn't worth it.
