Am I a Heart-less bitch? Or just too pissed to care? I am driving down the small highway that goes thru my tiny 'lil town toward the freeway on-ramp. It's about a 5 mile jaunt. It's only two lanes so it is almost always slow. No biggie. Well, I had this jack ass on a motercycle riding my ass even tho I was going 10 miles over the speed limit. Finally, he passes me going 20 miles faster than me...only to be stuck behind the guy in front of me. I say, "well that 'lil act sure got ya far, huh buddy?" Like we all do. lol Next he rides THIS guy's ass. And I mean close. I tell my son...what he is doing is called tailgating and is illegal. If that guy braked now it'd be his ass. So finally THAT guy turns and he zooms up on the NEXT person and passes them over the double yellow line of course! I tell my son again how illegal and dangerous that is. I tell him, "He could take out 8 cars full of people 'cause he's impatient." Well, he passes the NEXT guy too...over the double yellow. I am livid! He barely misses and could have killed us all! I say, "Where are the fucking cops when someone pulls this shit!?" All of a sudden everyone slows down. There is debris in the road. It's my motercycle guy's cycle parts. I see his smoking cycle on the side of the road and him writhing on the ground about 50 feet from it. We pull over. We get out and we stare down at him. He's alive. He's howling. His right leg is mangled. I am not sure why I am standing there. Until several others all gather that he just cut off. We are discussing how stupid he is. And that he's lucky. I hope he could hear us. Cause what I really wanted to do was yell at him! I feel kinda bad...'cause I was happy he got hurt. I was happy his bike was totaled. Maybe not happy...but I had a sense of satisfaction. For once...someone reaped the consequences for their stupid actions. This wasn't the first time that someone has come close to killing me on that road. I hope at least THIS guy learns his lesson.

When you play with fire... eventually you will get burned. Anyway... I saw this with a guy on a cycle a few years back myself... I am sure when he looks in the mirror(there wasn't any skin lift on his face) he has to think about his recklessness...

tailgating is tailgating
Some people just think they are to important and they have to let you know how slow you are by tailgating.
You just said what everyone else probably thinks - justice may be cruel, but he got burned for doing what he shouldn't have been doing.

I had someone tailgate me the other morning, and I was doing the speed limit in a school zone. When we passsed the sign that read "End of School Zone", he swung around me in the oncoming traffic lane flips me the bird and calls me @#$% slow driver. Where's the cops when you want em?

Don't feel guilty for thinking what most of us have thought.
Take care of your driving and hope that others take care of their driving.
And yet we all know that a lot of people think they are above the laws, which we generally created because of some of the foolish driving that has occurred.

bless you for being honest

This doesn't make you a bitch... he wasn't just playing with his life but with the lives of all those around him. It is hard to feel sympathy for that. If my children were in my car... I would have the same reaction if not worse.

Welcome to the blog...

Drop by and say hi sometime. Elysian

The sad thing is, Carrie, he probably will not learn a thing. Being in emergency services I see it all the time. As a professional we sometimes get the chance to actually ask guys like that, "what the hell were you thinking?". Most of the time we unfortunately just scoop up the body parts as well as the motorcycle parts. It is a good thing that not all motorcyclists are like that, and some have a bit of common sense. Regular motorists are, or can be, just as bad. Those we usually can ask what they were thinking, and when the breath of alcohol hits our nose we understand that they were unable to make the right choices, but when they poured the fluid down their throat and decided to drive the choice was already made.

As we say in the business, "If there were no stupid people, we would have a lot less to do in our job".

no I don't think I would label you heartless.
I would have asked him what his name was so I could put him on the darwin award list!!! I've been driving for a living for 20 years and have no sympathy for the stupid

Hey Carrie,you found the fine line between sad for an injury and satisfaction for just deserts.. I live down off the onramp you speak of, and traffic on that road has been hidious for years, there's always some fool that tempts fate and thinks he/she's one up on everyone else in line. Which would explain the constant sirens every half hour going towards your town daily...I drive a semi for a beer company and witness the stupidty up close every day.I'm twice as careful as a regular driver because i'm held to a different standard, but that doesn't stop the idiots from cutting me off and braking in front of me like I can stop a 30 foot semi on a dime? nice to see that you passed on good information to your son, and by witnessing what you saw he has learned a valuable lesson.
good job...phil
