Why is it…

…that the folks with the ‘hang up and drive’ bumper stickers are the worst drivers I see?

I could have gotten plowed over this morning by a woman who barely came to a rolling sort-of-stop as she sped towards NE Broadway heading south on 25th (and definitely over the speed limit for that residential side street, I’m sure.)

She didn’t even look over to see that I was already in the crosswalk and had the right of way as she made her right turn, sped through the light at 24th, and promptly cut across three lanes of traffic in one fell swoop – I’m pretty sure she didn’t even notice me, actually (and I’m not so hard to miss.)

Sure enough, on the back of her white minivan? ‘Hang up and drive.’

Uh, okay…

    Sweet Lord! I was just about to post a story like this! In happened on Interstate and I did slap the car. The woman never even flinched. I can’t help but wonder if she would have stopped if she ran over me?!
