Donít you just hate when you catch someone doing 50mph on a country road, then when you pass them, 75mph wonít get them off your bumper and they wonít stop flashing their lights? frown

Those folks living on those country roads must really like you guys driving like that. Maybe your definition of a country road is different than mine.

Careful on those road ragers. Had a patient in the hospital yesterday who had undergone extensive surgery after he and another man warred a bit on the highway. Seems the other dude followed him to a gas station, waited, and then ran him over. The patient is very fortunate to be alive, but he'll be messed up for life. He said he started it, but he figured the other guy won.

Crazy.
Oh, and no clue as to who ran the man over according to the patient. He is not in custody and probably never will be.

I had a run-in with a road rager in Florida. I'll give them all the space they need from now on. They play for keeps when they have nothing to lose.

Cruise up to Clearfield you'll feel all better.

Now we bark because they are paved.

Wish we still had them. I wonder what happened to all the graders. Probably melted and turned into Hondas

I saw a sister jump out of her car at a stoplight when someone behind her honked their horn. She was ready to throw down.

50 mph on a country road here doesn't end well. Let alone 75. You might not get found for months unless someone sees the fireball.

Curious........for those in a bigger hurry than I am.......what is your comfort zone when tailgaiting? For me, it's still the rule of 1 car length for each 10 mph speed.

It doesn't seem to matter much what the speed limit is.......if I drive 5 mph over the posted limit, I will pick up tailgaters.....plural. And it's generally 1 car length regardless of speed.

Happens all the time on the interstate. Pull out in the hammer lane to pass and the 4 wheeler speeds up. Pull back in behind them and they slow back down. Mash your motor and pass them, wait a minute, they slow down again. Is that deliberate or unconscious? Like following you behind the barricades into a construction zone?

What is it with turn signals? Why don't people use them anymore?

I think the tailgaters dont even realize what they are doing. I have many times just started slowing down to get them to pass. Its not uncommon to have to almost stop before they go around. Often you get the middle finger as they go around.

Herd mentality is a real thing

Talking about county and township roads. Not many guardrails on the township roads, especially in the national forest areas

Storms are the worst. Get a snow falling a bit heavy and if your in a truck you wont go very far before you have 6-8 pov's following you. My favorite is heavy rain or fog and people just stop in the middle of the road

numbered roads are state highways here they all are paved and have lines

lettered roads are county roads they are all paved some have lines

named roads are township roads about 90% are paved very few have any painted lines

unless otherwise posted 55mph on all of them is legal , but maybe not recommended on some of those that seem to turn at the edge of every square.

town center road is the longest running town ship road in the county , all the towns centers lined up

if a town road has two names expect it to be very poorly maintained , neither township wants to claim the cost of maintenance thinking the other should maintain it


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
