Retaliated – Almost!

Q. When driving from one appointment to the next this week, I was traveling in the right hand lane and was passed by someone who used the “turning lane” on my right side to pass me. This person was behind me, and could easily see that traffic was moving slow. As always, I left enough space to see the rear tires of the person in front of me, and as I did this, the person passed me and slid into the minimal gap that I had left for a safety zone.

Being a safe driver has always been something that I take pride in, however, at that moment when this person made such a reckless move, it took every ounce of restraint not to pay him back in some form or fashion.

Ultimately I stayed in my lane and let the situation dissipate, but only because I couldn’t retaliate without hurting my own car.

My question, what can we do about the “bone-headed” people who are on the streets today that have no respect for fellow drivers?

Driving in Fog!

Q. I wanted to follow up on a question that I have been getting a lot lately… what are the best steps to take when driving in the fog. In our part of the country, it seems as if each morning has been inundated with fog… not something that we have to deal with on a regular basis.
