Now coming - Cincinnati Dashboard Camera Videos.

After the style of the Russian Dashboard Cameras that photographed the Siberia meteorite last week.

I'd love to see a herd of cattle dump out onto I-275 as a Youtube video.

Honestly, I have considered getting a gadget like this.

You just can't make this stuff up.
Today, on my way home, 4pm, lot of traffic but moving, on a 4-lane narrowing to 2-lane, this *frumpy*, and I do mean frumpy, 50-yearold woman, glasses, gray sweater, gray Kia SUV, just could not stand being behind me (a larger SUV than hers), so she dangerously passes me on the right using the "lane ends" lane, gets in front of me, and then slows down to below the speed limit, so obviously she was not in a hurry.
Passive-aggressive and insular. I mean that is some small-ass "queen of my fingernail domain" stuff right there.

Today on the 1-71 north pass Montgomery road i was in the fast lane doing something like 72 and a car driving crazy weaving in and out of people got on my tail swerved into the shoulder as i speed up he speeds up with me and soon goes around me and passes on the very far right lane. The drivers have been driving very aggressive lately, a couple days ago a lady did the exact same thing to another driver as what the poster said above me. One more thing alot of people have been passing on the right lately why is this.

There is no such thing as a fast lane. The left lane of a freeway is supposed to be used for passing, after which you move over to a right lane.

People pass on the right because slower moving traffic is using the left lanes. Apparently those drivers cannot comprehend "slower traffic keep right".

Lived in at least 10 major cities over the years so here goes.

I ABSOLUTELY agree that cincinnati drivers are agressive.

They believe the speed limit...is speed suggestion.
They do not anticipate whats ahead of them which is why there are so many Brake shops in town.
They do not understand that a double yellow line means no passing.
School zone? whats that.
Stop sign means stop..... not roll.
They believe they can text, and drive, and drink their beer, at the same time.

The city could easily solve its multi million dollar financial deficit by writing tickets on Queen City, Beekman and Central parkway and installing stoplight cameras.

Cincy cops give a 15 mph buffer on the speed limit.

I guess it's all relative, but I find drivers in Cincy to be too passive honestly. Most of the people are too afraid to use their horn... even when someone is sleeping through a light. And don't even get me started on the idiots that dilly-dally in the far left lane; completely oblivious to the "convoy" behind them.

Absolutely correct on both.
And re: "sleeping through a light", I'm still searching for the one word that describes the phenomenon of the degenerate sleeping through a busy light due to cleaning out the McDonald's bags under their seat and then the next day that very same degenerate is all up your ass because they're behind you.

That is what everyone in Maine calls them. In Boston the second car at a red light will honk the horn at the first car as soon as the light turns green no matter how fast the first car takes off.

Some geezer in a Land Rover did this to me on Reed Hartman.
