Free-Style Driving

Have you noticed that very few drivers obey the laws of the road and do their own thing?  This used to pee me off, watching drivers run stop signs and redlights, make abrupt lane changes without signaling, apply make-up, eat, text, pet their dog.  You know what I'm saying.

You've watched athletic events where there's a category for free-style.  Anything goes.  That's what driving in America or at least California has become. .. one big free-style event.  I should start carrying those Olympic rating signs.  You know the ones.  Like they're numbered 5.0, 5.5, 8.0. .. all the way from 1 to 10. 

When some clown pulls a free-style thing I'll rate the dude, pull up one of those signs, start honking the horn and hang it out the window.  Why not put a little fun into something that irritates the hell out of you and I (you do following the rules of driving, don't you?). 

There should be warnings on cars where their drivers always put on make-up, eat, and what have you.  We need to be warned, don't you think?  Those are drivers to steer clear of.  Like:  Caution - Driver Chugging Beer!  Or, Lookout!  Driver Throws Chicken Bones Out The Window!!

There's a lot to be said about multi-tasking in the world we live in today.  But do we have multi-task while on the road and endanger other drivers?

Texting and whatever with the phones is my pet peev.

It's so dangerous. People just don;t get it.
When you kill one of my family members or friends because you were texting to your boyfriend which Starbucks you were going to meet him at and weren't paying attention..........Yeah that's going to feel good.
Because you couldn't pull over to text your kid that you'll pick her up after school at the corner of Elm, you just run over and old lady on Rose.
