    I agree 100%. I constantly watch and move out of the way accordingly to make sure I'm not in anyone's way. I can't help but feel that our roads would be so much less congested if everybody followed suit.


    Oh, and about the SRT-4. I didn't want to start a thread about it, but I was behind an SRT-4 a few nights ago that either had a straight pipe, or a cutout. If was the most horrible sounding vehicle I've ever heard. It sounded very similar to a Dodge Ram Cummins diesel that wasn't running well.

    My favorite saying is "Lead, follow, or get the F%&* out of my way!" though these days I tend to drive maybe 75 in a 65 instead of the 80-85 (or more) I used to do before I got old.

    Some driving memories stick with you vividly for a long time. About 10 years ago going home on the Mass Pike (3 lanes 65 mph limit) at maybe 6-7 pm in light traffic the left lane all of a sudden got backed up and was doing maybe 50 with a tailwind. I watched a dozen cars in front of me get frustrated with the slow poke and move to the middle lane and blare their horns at the car as they passed it. As I did the same thing, I looked at the guy and it was a 40ish guy with thick glasses in a Ford Fiesta who was hunched over the wheel like the atypical grandmother. He just stared straight ahead either too oblivious, stupid, or just messed up in the head to even respond. I still have to shake my head since I just don't get it!

    No actually from what my buddy told me, the guy wasn't really much of a driver (even more scary!). He seemed more oblivious than anything.

    So are you saying it's normal for people to hit the bumper of the person in front of you to get them to move over? If somebody does that to me they better watch out. I'll pull over and then swing back and PIT you into the median and claim you bumped me and caused me to lose control.

    If you're going less than 80 on the MP, you're impeding traffic - I try to avoid that road lol

    you wouldnt believe how many civics and the like try to race me. its sickening. and although some of you probably think i would take the bait because if my young age, i would like to say that i gladly let them pass while laughing and pointing.

    although, it is fun on occasion to run at a stoplight with a genuinely nicely modified car, like someone else said here in this thread. but, only if the conditions permit, such as a clear road ahead of you with no one that could get in your way.

    once i was next to a charger srt-8 while waiting for a light to get on the freeway. there was about a quarter mile of real estate before you got on the freeway where you had to wait at another light. the area was totally clear, so when the light turned green we both went. i started off ahead, but he started to catch up and ended up about a car length or two ahead. when we got to the next light, we both rolled down our windows and i asked him how much power his car had, because it was quite obvious from his exhaust note that it was modified. he said he was pushing about 450 hp to the wheels, and was shocked when i told him my lightly modified car had about 350 at the fly then he complimented my nice exhaust note, and i replied similarly.

    there are people out there with nice cars who are not total ass hats

    The man speaks the truth. However, I contend that GA-400, aka. "The GA Autobahn" is faster on average.
