Yesterday evening I was taking my wife out for supper at a unique restaurant about thirty miles north. We were traveling at the speed limit on a two lane road that still had a dusting for fresh snow. In my rear view mirror I could see a pick-up and behind the pick-up a small black car approaching fast. An oncoming car crested the hill and I was sure the small black car would slow and stay behind the pick-up, but instead he accelerated passing both the pick-up and our car while crossing a solid yellow line – just getting back to the right lane before the oncoming car closed the distance.

I have been against the Stand Your Ground laws passed in many southern and western states; but, I think I would support one in Maine if they included vehicular traffic. That way when some ass-hole endangered you on the highway you could lower your window and shoot at him.

You know, perhaps that is one way motorcycle riders could get some respect.

  1. OB,
    Come on Chief, get the asshole's tag number and call the Maine State Police. I was passing a long line of semis on I-70W west of INDY whwn I had a asshole in behind me sitting on my back bumper blaring his horn. When I finally was able to get over into the right lane the asshole blared his horn again as he raced by.
    Unfortunately for the asshole - he had a three letter designer tag and I called the ISP - they connected me to the post at Putnamville - Just off I-70, and they sent a tropper out to nail his ass. Traffic was light and I was able to slow down and honk my horn as I went by him and the trooper.

    No rounds down range in anger on a highway - You might hit someone else...
