    Last night I was going to work and I got to the last stoplight before Walmart. I had a red light so I stopped, when the light changed I took off, just as I took off the lady riding with me said,"Mark the person driving on Shawnee is going to run the light", so I stopped. Had Pam not said anything we would have gotten T boned for sure. This guy was in the outside lane on Shawnee and after the intersection he veered over jumped the median and went into the oncoming lanes, thankfully there was no traffic right there. I reckon we are a couple lucky MoFo's:phew::alex:

    Glad you are ok. Good on Pam for being observant. BTW I hate those mother ********rs who are so narcissistic that they threaten or cause the death of another.

    Weird but I can relate, a few years ago I was driving with a girlfriend of mine and for some unknown reason I just felt like the guy at the intersection was going to randomly pull out in front of us. And the dumb bastard did! I had already slowed and prepared for the idiot but I really have no explanation of why I got that feeling.

    Think about it to this day.

    If she had enough time to say all that, you'd have been a mile up the road.

    If the car had of been close, it would have been a panicked, "Watch out!", not a calm "Mark, blah blah blah".

    Something fishy here.

    That takes less than five seconds to say.

    It doesn't take ESP to tell what a car is going to do. If you see a car approaching a stop sign or red light, and it isn't slowing down when it should be, that is a hint that it is going to blow through the intersection. It has happened to me.

    The pattern of motion of a car is similar to body language. With experience, you learn to "read" it.

    Glad to hear that you're o.k., Mark!!!!


    Driving defensively is necessary, no, mandatory.

    I guess the guy kept on driving?

    Guess he messed his front end up. Drunk maybe?

    Question: Why isn't Okie in the morgue or the hospital?
    Answer: He can't post on GT from either of those places

    Just one? I'd say a LOT of them! On demand, too.
