  The light turned yellow, just in

  He took her to the police station

I love this one Justin. I was approaching a red light a few weeks back when someone with a Jesus fish cut in front of me from two lanes over. I thought then,"What would Jesus do?" I did nothing. Only to be flipped off as he drove away.
It seems that everyone is all about doing the right thing, unless they are driving. Then other people in cars just become obsticles in their way.

...sometimes the only thing that holds my halo is my horns! I start to slow on a stale green, press the brake on a yellow to stop in time. This infuriates the sniffing tailgater...to swerve around and make a total nut of themselves...they run the light, not me. ...not funny when you check this out:
Scary? yup...
Drive safe Dunes buds!

Ah, road rage.
I deal with it by laughing and waving nicely at the other angry person.
That REALLY pisses them off...and I laugh even harder....cos I have 'won'.

Greg. . . .hahaa. . I can imagine you. . . .

Other morning driving to campus I slowed down a bit to allow a driver time to pull out of his driveway and join the traffic. . . .The driver behind me was not pleased at all. ho ho ho

When we stopped for the light. . this driver was next lane to me. . this old winkled up, heavily lined face mouthed the F-word at me. I replied quickly. . tracing a cross-sign blessing at him. . .it was priceless. . .his mouth fell open. . .toothless hag! hahahhaaa

The ones who scare me are those right behind me, smelling-sniffin my tailpipe. . .pervs!- - the women putting on make-up. . or the guy reading the morning paper on the steering wheel.

Angels preserve us from wayward drivers.

A bloke I know was driving a heavy truck in Sydney when a young dude cut in front of him and braked suddenly. A mile or two further on he did it again. He was hoping the truck would rear-end him so he could collect the insurance. But the bloke driving the truck was wise to the young dude's plan. When it happened a third time at a set of lights, the truck driver got out, reached in through the car's window, pulled the young bloke through the window and broke his nose.

A few hours later, the truck driver got a visit at home from the cops. He said he had nothing to say unless it was off the record. So the cop put his book away and listened to the driver's story. And that was the end of the matter. The driver never heard anything more about it.
