    Cool I think I scared a Geo Metro

    It was around midnight last night and I was driving home. I come to a stop light behind a burgandy Geo Metro hatchback. No big deal...I was tired and I needed sleep. The light turns green and we take off at normal speed. The speed limit's 30 and we're going about 35-40...I was keeping a lot of distance between us, but I was close enough that someone wouldn't try to cut me off from the merging right lane. I guess that gave him a scare, because he started to gun it...or something? He definitely seemed like he was accelerating, but I barely noticed as I just up the pace with him.

    We come to this long right turn, which most cars can take at about 35 without having to cut into the bicycle lane on the right. Most sport-oriented cars should have no problem taking it at 45 with the proper driving style. Once we hit this turn however, he starts cutting into the bicycle lane going 50! I thought it was really weird so I still kept pace with him, not having to cut into the bicycle lane of course. We then hit a straight and he keeps gunning it. I slowed back down to the speed limit but the little car just kept going. Then, all of a sudden, he brakes really hard and takes a right onto a street! I'm sitting there just kinda thinking "Ummmm ok...." heheheh
