Default think the Bonneville gods are telling me something?

Driving home from school today, noticed a weird coincedence. I got behind 2 white 00+ Bonneville SEs at the same time, all 3 of us in a row. "Hm, that'* cool" I thought, but didnt' think much of it. We were all 3 driving down the 4 lane, in a light rain, with the road already soaked. I was in the right lane, and needed to be in the left lane. I looked in my drivers side mirror to make sure there was no one behind me so I could move over. I only glanced at my mirror for a half a second. By the time I looked up, the front Bonneville had slammed on the brakes (missed turn it appears) causing the second Bonneville to slam on brakes, causing me to swerve into the left lane, almost losing control. That was really close, though. Double white curse ya think? Maybe I was too close to those 2, the curse rubbed off on my car for a while.

Two white cars near you? You're lucky to have made it out alive.

I agree... things happen to them white ones.. always leave plenty of distance. Think of it as a safety zone buffer. Let'* not forget.. an airplane once fell on a white one. You can never leave enough room.
