Road Rage…Common Sense

This post is not really about road rage…although it can lead to one based on people not having common sense when they are on the road. It can happen far too often to show some resemblance to road rage and perhaps taking it out on the wrong person.

Here follows:

  • Never ever park or wait in line on the railroad tracks.  Seriously, a slow or fast moving train cannot stop in time. GET OFF THE TRACKS! Yes, even when you are ‘waiting’ in line!
  • When it is foggy outside, whether you can see only 15 feet or a quarter mile, TURN ON YOUR *&%&( LIGHTS!  Even your fog lights too! (https://www.weather.gov/safety/fog-driving)
  • Folks: there is a slow lane, average speed (even with a plus 5 mph) and a fast lane. The fast lane is actually called a PASSING LANE. That means do not stay on this lane the entire time and drive vvvvvveeeeeeerrrrrryyyyyyy ssssslllllllooooooowwwwwww. One moves from the middle or slow lane (depending on the number of lanes) to pass a vehicle. And MOVES BACK TO THE MIDDLE OR SLOW LANE!  Seriously, most Illinois people are guilty of this and Indiana has a law….. https://indianapublicmedia.org/news/indianas-slow-lane-law-work-150005/  Move over for the tailgating cars, trucks, or even a turtle that is driving faster than you.
  • Sometimes people move over because they need/want to pass a vehicle in front of them, when they use a blinker, it does not always mean that one has to drive faster than the car wanting to pass and the vehicle in front of the car. SLOW DOWN a bit, will ya?  Couresty does not hurt anyone, who knows maybe karma will pay it forward for you.
  • For whatever reason, do not brake immediately in front of the car (especially when there’s no vehicle in front of one’s car) just because you are royally pissed off that they forgot to use the blinker or is weaving on the road. The rear car is almost always at fault, despite the front car being an arse. Road rage does not look pretty at the end. Who knows why these things happen, MOVE ON!

That is all I have now. Who knows I will update. I am sure we all have those moments.
