Commute observations

So in the last two weeks, I've seen some pretty dumb things while driving to work.

First was they guy in some little blue thing. There was a GPS unit attached to the windshield. While I think it's a pretty bad idea to have it in an area that can obviously obsruct your vision anyway, this guy had it mounted basically in the center of the drivers side of his windshield

Car two was today. New black Camaro, not only was he holding up traffic on S.B. I75 in the left lane for a few miles, but when he finally switched to lane 2, as I pass him I see two hands on the steering wheel and a blackberry lit up and MOUNTED in the center of his steering wheel

Just a small piece of the daily commute observations

What are some of your stupid sightings?

There aren't enough cars on the road when I head into work to see any stupid stuff.

Messed up stuff for sure in commuting .

Like I was going S.B. I75. I was checking an email on my Black Berry. When this guy in a GMC Sierra flies past me like a maniac. Well I made sure to text all my buddies right then and there to warn them.

LMAO BBQ that is awsome

the worst that i ever saw when driving what a girl in this beat down pos civic straightening her hair while trying to drive. i was tempted to bump pass her just to scare the sh*t out of her, but figured she'd probably claim i owed her a new car after wrecking her pos

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

I am on one of my bikes, it's 5AM and I'm headin' to work on the darkest 2-lane (each way) divided highway you can imagine. Been sorta following this guy (I'm in the fast lane he is in the slow lane) cuz he is bobbin' & weavin' like he's hammered.

I wait for the section of highway where it widens a bit, is bullet straight, level and non roller coaster material . I time his weave to the right and pin it to get by him. As I scream by (watchin' him like a hawk in case he starts to head back my way) I look over and see him turning the page on his book which is held on the steering wheel with an actual holder of some kind!! WTF!

I can't stand those aftermarket UV spraying, blue glare-creating headlights the kiddies stick on their little econoboxes. They're a hazard for other drivers.
