I was on my cycle in a parking lot waiting for a friend for lunch when some yahoo drives his cage past my parking spot like a mouse on crack. He busts a left not even seeing that he cut off another car that had the right of way. I watched the whole thing and was amazed on how oblivious this driver was. I would categorize this bad driver as a Space Cadet.
Last week while riding through rural farm land I saw a tan SUV crossing the yellow line into my lane about 400 yards ahead of me and approaching fast. As the vehicle got closer it kept on eating up more of my lane from the opposite direction. I immediately swerved my cycle to the right onto the median and decreased speed. At this point, I am thinking to myself, “Is this wing nut trying to kill me”. Fortunately the oncoming driver lifted her head and noticed that she had drifted into the wrong lane then swerved back into her own lane of traffic… As she past, I saw her cell phone in her left hand. An obvious case of texting gone wrong. This type of bad driver is of the Death by Text variety.
I’m sure we all have stories of bad drivers. I’m interested in any wacky names you may associate with drivers who cause such shenanigans. Bad Drivers Suck but cool names describing their tom foolery are a small bright spot in another wise frightful highway. Let me have your Descriptive Names for the all the bad driving behaviors out there.
