I doing some soccer shopping this morning and driving on Upper Roswell; I was coming from the Mill going towards the 120 Loop. Speed limit is 45 so I'm doing my normal 50-55 at some points. Sometimes traffic was doing 10 "below" the speed limit so I just go into the other lane and accelerate to my normal driving speed and pass everyone.
Well something really pissed this old tan/brown Ford van off. I know I passed this van a while back and he's next to me at a light on Upper Roswell and Johnson Ferry. We're both the second cars as both of us are behind other cars; he's in the left lane and I'm in the right. Light turns green and I'm just driving like normal when I notice the van coming into "my" lane. I let it go figuring he's on the cell phone or just not paying attention. Then he does the same thing again. I'm now thinking to myself what's wrong with this person so I slow down. I figure drinking this early in Cobb County is a little weird. As I start to accelerate to pass him, he come into my lane ... no blinkers, etc. Now he's sitting infront of me and take "both" lanes literally so no tarffic can pass. I just sit back and wait for him to chose a lane. He decides to come into my lane so I use the blinkers and move into the left lane. As I'm about to pass him he comes into my lane yet again w/ no blinkers and hits the brakes? He was a little too close to my car so I was not happy.
I was going to let him slide earlier but this really pissed me off. Pretty boy wouldn't let me pass so I pulled out the cell phone and called 911. I reported a tan/brown van driving below the sped limit in both lanes all over the road and cutting traffic off who's trying to pass. This whole time we're going "below" the speed limit. I gave the operator the license plate and location on Upper Roswell where we're at. She stated that she'll notify the officers in the area so I gave my thanks. Granted maybe nothing happened to the van but at least I said something. The samething happened to me a few years ago when I was in college coming back home around 2am. Why are people so weird?
