Open Letter to an Idiot Who Stopped While Entering the Freeway

Share
Dear Vehicular Imbecile:

I am not sure what was going through your gnat-sized brain when you reached the end of the on-ramp to westbound I-475 and stopped your Acura this afternoon, but I suspect your mental activity at the moment bordered on the sub-cognitive. Still, even a drooling simpleton has enough common sense to figure out that the best way to merge onto freeway traffic is to attain a rate of speed equal to or slightly in excess of the other vehicles on the interstate.

This, of course, ignores the fact that most sane drivers anticipate that the person in front of them on the on-ramp understands how to properly enter the freeway, like I did. Luckily for you, I noticed your brake lights a few seconds before my Hyundai slammed into the rear end of your almost-parked car, and I skidded to a halt six feet or so before creaming you.

I cannot even blame cell phones or new technology for your stupidity - you simply stopped, looked around, waited for a break in traffic, and accelerated onto the now-empty freeway.

Thus, I curse you: May the hairs on your arse turn into nail-studded clubs that beat you into a bloody pulp, you mindless cretin.

How about a woman backing up on the freeway ramp because she missed the interchange and then pulled away scott free after the car behind her stopped in time but got hit by the car behind him, who got hit by the car behind him.

Oh yes.

It's a Southern thing. In the mountains down South there are lights at freeway on ramps, indicating if you can enter the freeway or not. This leads people to believe that they must stop and wait for a break in traffic in order to get on a freeway.

Almost as bad is the driver who enters the freeway at the regulation 55 MPH, when the slow lane is doing a solid 80.

Acura drivers tend to be idiots. This isn't a surprise....
