Default Impatient people in too expenive foreign doodads

Sunday i was casually travalin down the AA Hwy at 60Mph (5 over the limit) with my parents sleepin, and i was drivin their '00 Park Avenue (non SC). There was an anoying little foreign somthin or other (i couldnt tell what it was) but he was on my rear end flashing his lights and riding my bumper. So i get pissed and decide to have some fun. So (i know i became what i hate) i slow to 45 (10 under the limit) and he gets REAL mad. We come to a passing zone and he pulls to my left to pass (in the oncoming lane) and i floor it. A car was coming in the other direction so he let up at 90mph and got back into the right lane just before this car passed. Well this car was a cop, and saw the incident, though he didnt know how fast we were going so he pulls the little car over (by this time i was back down to 45mph to **** him off, and it turned into a 4 lane hwy, so he passed me) for wreckless driving i suppose and as i pass i just Tip my hat, and he flips me off right when the cop walked up. I woulda liked to hear that conversation. Too impatient...lol. Dont screw with my [parents'] Park Avenue

Nice one. I usually try to have a 'decoy' when driving. Someone just in front of me more likely to be pulled over than my grocery-getter. It'* worked for me several times now, and never failed me.

i know, it was a really bad move, but the guy was just pissing me off so much that I lost all sence of reason. I got in the "tunnel vision" state, you know?

I agree, what if there had been a head on collision, guess who would have been at fault (give you a hint, it wouldn't just be him)

Nah man, that guy deserved it. It wouldn't of been your fault if he had got in a head on collision. All he has to do is slow down 5mph, if someone is coming, to get behind you.

I mean you were already going slightly over the speed limit. He should have been patient instead of flashing his lights and riding your ***. Thats always a good reason for me to kick someones *** when people do that.

It wouldve been his fault if their was a head on collision. when somebody is passing you, you are to slow down and let the car pass. Otherwise by some small chance both couyld brake at the same time and still cause a head on collision.

Okay, people that need to pass an already speeding vehicle are idiots. He deserved that ticket in every way, by being impatient and speeding he was delayed even more and now has a ticket to his name. I say good job teaching that ******** a leason.
