Ok so I was driving tonight (done for the night now) and it was a 2 lane on the interstate and this stupid motorcyclist was trying to go between me and another semi!!!!!! I moved into the shoulder a bit and slowed down let him pass. First thought was I am going to accidentally kill a motorcyclist but damn second thought this guy is so stupid! What was your most "how stupid can they get" moment?

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Hehe, true enough.

Talking about motorcyclists, I find most of them to be safe and courteous. What scares me are the “crotch rocket” jockeys who pass me either on the right or left at high speed. If I don’t see them coming, it startles the heck out of me. Even if a driver properly monitors the mirrors, these speed jockeys will go by like human dive bombers before they can be noticed.

I hate things on the road that startle me.

I can speak from experience on them being dive bombers. One of them was going over 100MPH down a street in front of my house, they rear ended a parked car and were decapitated by a light pole after they were sent flying down the street.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Good to see you around again, man!

That dude sure was an idiot; could've fared a lot worse, however!

Same here; and I'm not even a 'driver!' I don't even bother Tom with his daily episodes anymore!!! Sounds like Ms. Laura is 'having some fun' at the ports, speaking of 'stupidity.' Obviously NOT HERS, (IdMtnGal !!) but those around the ports. SMDH.

(She should post up some pix!!!)

Splitting lanes between 2 semis is NEVER a good idea, dang!!!

Be safe, y'all. Leave the stupidity to the stupids. I pray for my biker daughter EVERY day.
