When I got back from buying my SSEi, I met with my business partner and my wife.. I was all excited about the SSEi and they proceeded to really very compassionately and sincerely tell me about thier concerns.

I was so hurt that the perception I gave off was of someone who was unsafe on the roads. This has bothered me greatly and seeing all these bonneviles in accidents has galvanized me.. and I hope the rest of the club. I just don't want to hear that Harofreak'* beautiful 2000, or Willrens Zilla, or Don'* SSE, or hell ANYONE'* car (or worse life) was lost.

I've only been a member of BC for about 3 months and 7 days, but in that short time, I've grown fond of just about everyone who frequents this website.

There'* going to be a time and place for burnouts, passing the ricers, and generally speaking having a damn good time.. hell it might be some other point during the winter even. Just not this Sunday. We can do it guys and gals.

I think they are just jealous of the new ride.

says the guy who made it home in record time from Bill'* house




j/k trust me Im probably the most easy going driver out there.
ask any of my friends.
I just dont understand why people get upset when driving.

"they need to get out of my way"
" [email protected]#$#$lle cut me off"
"I was here first"
" will those kids hurry up and cross the street"
"stupid school busses" ----( although I do hate them )
"I hate when someone blocks the intersection"
I can go on and on

maybe you can tell I do most of my driving
in the city neighborhoods.

My point is.....
whats the rush. your only going to meet up with the driver
in front of you at the next Light. Chill

I'm game....I play "grandma" driver everyday because of safety and gas issues.... icy roads this morning...bridges are the worse....but for some reason this Trailblazer didn't seem to think the icy conditions would apply to him/her...vehicle was lying on its passenger side and I met the ambulance on the other side of the bridge.

Don't Hurry...Be Happy.....

In most cases, no one really has to be anywhere "so quickly" as to put their lives and the lives of others at risk. Case in point, you get in an accident or get pulled over and you end up losing more time than you would have saved.

Not worth cutting a few minutes off of your drive and putting yourself and others at risk.

I had been trying to do that anyways, hence the speed at which i was going when i wrecked, and after the wreck, that is a most definite! Count me in!!! Speed may be all cool and such, but they make those lil white signs with black lettering for a reason. So i support this not just the day set aside, but everyday
