....a decal on the camper of a pickup which read "KBHomesbuilt2Fail.com". Above this was another decal feauring a cartoon with a sly grin, wearing a cowboy hat, and urinating on letters "KB". Evidently this pickup's brakes (or driver's common sense) must have failed as well because he coolly cruised a right turn at a 4 way stop without stopping like the rest of us commoners.

Last week at the frontage road and Broadway off 410 on a very cold morning, a motorcyclist gives his bike perhaps a bit too much throttle and careens into the curb across the road. His bike was damaged but the cyclist seemed to be unharmed. I see drivers regularly over apply the throttle in all types of weather, but in the cold when there may be black ice or just downright slippery spots, this can have consequences.

It's quite possible that his tires weren't warmed up enough to give him any traction. I've heard of this happening countless times.

Ok, so I wasn't driving but Saturday afternoon I was sitting in Chili's on Broadway when a gorgeous grey car pulled up. It caught my eye as it was so different from the norm I'm used to seeing every day. One of my friends asked the 40ish man who was behind the wheel and with a smile, he proudly responded, "A Maserati." WOW! I see Mercedes, BMWs all day long but this one was sweetly in a class all its own.

Also, I recall a while back seeing a black Maybach (twice) parked in front of Bill Miller's on Broadway. Cool.

I live in the area of N New Braunsfels and Austin Highway and I'd there are about a half dozen of those care roaming around. They a truly a sight to see.

On eastbound I-10 at about 6:20am this morning, I had the good fortune, along with a large number of other drivers, to encounter a fellow San Antonio commuter in the left lane of the freeway, going all of 35 mph. Now granted, it was raining lightly and the road surface was wet, and I have lived here long enough to know that rain will slow down the commute here like a blizzard will in other areas. I just could not believe that someone was actually going 35 mph, in the left lane of a freeway due to drizzle. People were honking, flashing headlights, one driver had his arm out the window pointing to the "LEFT LANE FOR PASSING ONLY" signs.

Bottom line, if you can only drive 35 mph in the rain, maybe stick to surface streets and avoid freeways. This clown on 10 this morning was nearly causing more accidents than he was preventing due to his ridiculously over cautious speed.

I laughed out loud at the image of someone actually sticking his arm out to point. The activity around Mr. "I can't drive 65" probably scared the poor fellow.

Drive Sensibly Safe SA!

There's a Maserati that regularly parks on the driveway in my neighborhood and my neighborhood ain't all that nice. They must let the salesmen take them home or that guy is one of those secret millionaire types.

Woman driving in the parking lot of Ingram mall. Four intersections we went through in the parking lot. 2 with stop signs, 2 without. She runs each stop sign and stops at the 2 where there we no stop signs.....

Saw another winning female driver yesterday. Blue car on 410 at San Pedro around 230pm. Doing about 70mph using her knees to steer because both her hands and eyes were on her phone texting a book to someone.
