(Toledo, OH) There is something about a snowfall after a period without frozen precipitation that makes the worst drivers seem even more of road hazard. I witnessed more highway stupidity this morning while running some errands than I have seen in the past two weeks.
To the moron who faced me at an intersection in which we were both turning into the same lane: the right of way goes to the person turning right. Pretty simple, isn't it?
To the numerous imbeciles who think that turn signals are optional: not only are they required by law, but they are also a means of protecting your automobile from damage by other vehicles, driven by people who assume that you are not going to make unannounced turns. Use your turn signals!
To the jackasses who seem to believe cell phone calls take precedence over operating a multi-ton machine: Watch the f***ing road, nimrods. Turn off your cell when you are driving, and there will be messages waiting for you when you arrive at your destination (if, that is, on the off chance that the call was important to begin with).
To the simpleton who is the first one at the stoplight, but who invariably nods off when the green arrow lights up: there is a special circle in Hell reserved for you, and I hope that you suffer an eternity of torture watching "Charles in Charge" reruns.
