Anybody else sick of the bumber car mentality most cagers have? I almost got hit by a moron in a Camry this morning. She of course was off in lala land and was really just to unaware of her surroundings to even be behind the wheel. I've witnessed two "accidents" happen in front of my eyes over the past couple months. The cause of both were idiots trying to do everything but drive when behind wheel. These people need to be dragged out of their cars and bitch slapped before they kill someone. Ok done venting. Thanks! :rant

I guess my point to all that was they figure they just bounce off of people and keep going.

yup, sounds about right. :shrug

I watched a trailblazer bounce off a guardrail yesterday because the chick behind the wheel was putting on lipstick and talking on her phone at the same time. :shrug

The bumper is still laying on the side of the expressway.

Anybody that commutes in traffic sees this on a regular basis. Scary enough when you're in a cage yourself, but when you're on a 'cycle, it's ridiculous.

I tend to avoid the freeway when I commute since it seems people in the cages would rather do this multitasking at speeds above 70 mph.

Of course, a couple of months ago I was riding home from work when a guy kept drifting into my lane in front me. I was waiting for the opportunity to get by him. When I did, I noticed that he was talking on a cell phone and eating cornflakes out of the box. He was oblivious to what was going on around him.

The other day, I saw this dolt behind the wheel with a bag of cheetos in one hand and a cheeto itself in the other hand. Neither hand was on the wheel and he was geturing while talking to the pasenger. If I had been driving, I would have swerved at him, just to see the idiot freak out and go in the ditch.

:nanana

Idiots!

Don't some more vicious people throw stuff at persons like this? Things like pennies etc?
Yeah, people are known to carry all sorts of goodies to drop in front of these people.

Thing is we will bounce off of a drifting car but they will ruin their paint but we will have a lot worse damage:rant

I had a jackass in a BMW try doing a 3 lane change and I happened to be in the 3rd lane and almost put me into the guard rail. That was a time I wish I had a sparkplug or something:rant :shake
