At full lock, I almost still hit her and if I had hit her, the UPS truck would have nailed us both.

Yes, I would have went for broke over this if I had made full contact.

You do know that important people have important places to be?

Nice job dodging that bullet. Smile

I'm sure your truck was too small for her to see. Probably didn't see you at all.

It's all I got.... Smile

I had a garbage truck make the same type move in front of me a month or two ago. I pulled over since it was a close one anyway, and shit on my passenger seat went flying. The driver got out and started yelling at me getting super defensive.

I called the company and their "answering service" took my name and complaint and no one ever called back. I tried calling back again and no one answered. Guess they just send all complaints about their drivers into the "ignore" box.

I wish there would have been audio, I'll bet it was colorful to say the least.

Possible (but no less stupid) explanation:
Idiot saw the semi coming and thought, "I don't want to follow this truck on this two lane, I will never be able to pass it". And then pulled out in front of you to "beat" the truck.
I often see this in the Yoop where log trucks are involved.

Probably was concerned about beating that semi and never saw you. I've seen a dash cam from a fire engine running lights and siren KOing a car that pulled out in front of it and the driver doesn't seem to see it coming.

And another idiot on the same road.

I get nailed for my back tire supposedly "touching the fog line" and this asshole is going to fucking KILL someone and nothing.

What is a fog line and does it effect the story? (Serious q)







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I believe that the "fog line" is the white line that marks the right hand side of the driving lane; it designates the border between the driving lane and the shoulder of the road. I had never heard that term until Marzy mentioned it in a post, a while ago.

As far as how it affects the story, Marzy said that a cop stopped him because his tire "touched the fog line." I don't remember whether he was ticketed for that alleged offense, or if it was a warning, but I think it was a ticket. I'm not positive.



A mind is a terrible thing.
