Stress the LA freeway

Lately I've had the MISfortune of needing to drive on the LA freeway system a couple days a week. Trust me, I am really stressed out by that activity.

Most of the drivers (like most people everywhere) are kind and considerate though most think the speed limit is 80 mph. Some of them are just a**holes.

Like the guy who came up behind me this morning at 6:15 am (it was still dark) with his headlights on the bright setting. He tailgated me for a few miles. I am very concerned with tailgaters who, I think, are the cause of many accidents.

The problem is that I was in the car pool lane and, by law, you are prohibted from crossing the double yellow lines that mark the lane until you reach an exit point. So, what the hell was I supposed to do? I was already going 75 mph.

This jerk was so worked up he went around me on the right side, crossing the double yellow twice to accomplish his silly and stupid action.

But I had the last laugh. In 5 minutes time I was driving right behind that lunatic when the traffic slowed down. I controlled myself to not honk and give him the skronski salute (middle finger).

If you are stressed, don't be that guy. It's just not good for business nor your physical health from so many aspects.

  1. It's not much better in Chicago, San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York. But LA drivers drive the fastest and are the most aggressive, in my opinion.

  2. Aaaah, I know what you mean. Nasty rude drivers can be a real pain. Of course, East London in South Africa is tiny compared to LA, but we've recently had a new shopping mall built near a freeway, and all the road construction work going on in the area has had traffic backed up much further than usual, and drivers, who have absolutely no emergency whatsoever, other than the same as all drivers in the queue maybe being late for work or dropping children at school - and they try and push into the offramp queue. Drives me mad!
