It was too much to take in at first glance. I saw this twice on Highway 90 and then again on 151. Wow! It certainly broke the monotony of my daily drive.
Bout time!

No kidding....30 mph. This was because she was actually driving with her elbows as she was using BOTH HANDS to text on her cell phone. She was completely oblivious to any and all traffic around her. People like this should lose their license....period. The put so many other people at risk because they cannot wait to read/reply to a stupid text message.
Probably posting here on City-Data...

......a Justin Bieber look-alike, opened door to his jeep with Florida plates at a red light in a busy intersection, and promptly spits out a giant gob of white stuff for all to see...eeeeeeek!! "Say now young man, I don't know how they do things in Florida, but here in the great state of Texas, we use a spitoon fashioned out of a Lone Star Beer can for such tasks." (7 a.m.)

A few weeks ago I was driving inbound 10 between Vance Jackson and the split and traffic comes to like the slowest I've ever seen it. I was certain I was going to be late for work. There were no signs on transguide indicating an accident. The further up I got...I saw a spun out truck taking up half the edge of the left lane and I cop giving it a ticket. There was no one in the car. I was so confused, but not late for work.

Default Rear end?

I get into the left lane (10 is 2 lanes wide here) to allow traffic coming on to merge. One rocket scientist goes from the on ramp to left lane, right in front of me going all of 40 mph. I was doing 70, the posted speed limit and had to stand on my brakes to keep from rear ending CPT Oblivious. I managed to get around him/her on the right. Now, this free thinker had a good 10-12 car lengths between them and the car in front of them and was still doing all of 50mph. I moved back to the left lane to pass a slower car in the right lane leaving a safe 5-6 car lengths between me and the slow oblivious driver. At this point, the clown floors it, starts flashing his head lights, blowing his horn and runs up on my bumper. Comes around me on the right flipping me off, swerving, etc. Apparently, I was unaware the the left lane of I-10 from Ralph Fair to Huebner is reserved for the sole use of this person. He kept it up for a good couple of miles until I was able to peel him off in merging traffic. People like this are the idiots that the SAPD needs to be looking for, not people going 5mph over the speed limit. He will be lucky if he doesn't end up getting rammed or worse by someone with less patience than I have.
After having people in POS trucks/cars do this to me over and over I'm convinced they ARE hoping someone rear ends them so they can sue. I've had meat heads change lanes in front of me when they were stopped at left turns on a red light. I'm not invisible, and they do it just at the right time to have caused an accident....but I look out for them, so I almost expect it/avoid them. I saw a guy in another town literally ride up next to a woman in a nice SUV on his bicycle and JUMP onto her hood....found out later after he went for a ride to the hospital for "unseen injuries" that he had a history of this kind of crap.
Just watching the 9:00 news should tell everyone that people are just nuts.

I couldn't have agree more. Makes you wonder how people got their drivers license in the first place.

....sitting at a light at 410/Culebra, I notice that McDonald's has added a second menu board/lane, so I drive in for a sundae (yes, on a cool day) but was told that the machine was broken. Sunday sundae fail......

....I see a familiar red, coca-cola truck that pulled up next to me at a light. Hybrid-electric? Wow!! I may have been too busy navigating through SA traffic all this time to notice this before. This is not my picture, got it off the web. I have a regular text phone that proudly wears a dunce hat Happy Friday!!
