Something similar happened to me all though a little different. I was entering the highway off a blind corner entrance ramp with about a quarter mile worth of lane. When i turn the corner there are 12 bikers in the right lane. All riding perfectly one car length apart. There were cars behind me and no where to go. They all refused to get over including an explorer shoved up there ass. I chose jhst to ease over and pray. The explorer was forced over in to a wide open middle lane. They proceeded to come up beside me and cuss me for a good minute then floor it and rip their poo mobile back in front of me and coninue down the highway blocking an entire 1/4 of the right lane. Some people have no respect for any one else!!

Can she prove that he was going 10 under or that he floored the gas when she tried to pass? If not how does anyone know that she is telling the truth, I see people make stupid mistakes like this every day and would always pass the blame on the other person. I drive at the speed limit or just above it, I get passed regularly even at 5mph over and I would say 10 out of 10 times the cars passing me think I am going too slow.

Sooo her slowing down and falling behind the other car wasn't an option??? Not that I agree with what the guy did you, total dick move. but damn people need to be aware on the road ..

I cant tell you how many times i see exactly what you just described happen to take place on the ramp for 85 s gettin on to 77s

Tailgating is the one thing in life I truly hate. Ride my trucks tailgate & you'll find yourself staring down the barrel of a Colt 1911 .45

Spoken like a true idiot and asshole.

If you take that stance, you might just find yourself lying dead in a ditch when someone shoots you too.

Fwiw, I am not real fond of tailgaters either. Especially when they tailgate in heavy traffic when I can't speed up and I am in the right lane, or I can't get over because there are cars on all sides and in front of me.

But I don't think I would shoot a tailgater though. That might be a bit on the extreme side. :)

I lol at tailgaters. Are you really going to run your honda prelude into my tundra???

If your are going slow in the left I give you a chance to see me...if that fails then I flash my lights...if that fails then I pass you on the right.

It's like clockwork. In the Summer I get a speeding ticket. Go on two year probation and 2 years later I get another ticket.

so she has a full head of steam and dude is still able to make up enough ground to not let her in? i'm not dismissing the story, but females have a tendency to make this kind of stuff up. her record doesn't help her out either. not taking sides. just saying.

Apparently she was going to work and some dude was going 10 miles bellow speed limit so she decided to pass him, the extra line was finishing in like 300ft so she floored it but the dude floored it as well not to let her in... The line was finishing and she could not slow down on time so she hit side railing at like 60mph, totaling her car and side swiping the dudes car. Cop gave her a ticket for reckless driving on top of that...

She's getting a lawyer to try to wave reckless driving ticket. What should I expect? It's her first accident in 3 years lol. She totaled another car just over 3 years ago... also her fault.

Lemme see if I can translate this from womenese to real life:

The right lane was going the speed limit if not a bit faster, including the car in front of her. The far right lane was quickly ending, as it has every day since it's creation years ago...leaving it's merging as no surprise to her or any other driver on the road that day. Already ten minutes late for work, she thought she could make up some time by getting in front of the car directly in front of her...not realizing there were 2,045 cars in front of him as well. She saw Fast and the Furious, so she knew all about racing, closing speed, drift, and overcorrection. There was a good 1000 feet to pass the driver safely traveling on his way in front of her. 1000 feet was plenty to get her small 4 cylinder import out of line, past the car in front, and then back in line safely. Physics be damned. About halfway through the pass, she realizes her underpowered car didn't quite have the torque to throw it forward enough in the given space. Forgetting there was a perfectly workable break pedal beside her gas pedal (sidebar: let's all laugh at the idea of there being a clutch in her car), she tried to speed up when she freaked out about the impending barrier that, again, had been there for years. Caught in his blind spot, said driver in front wasn't aware of someone trying to make an idiotic pass on his right at that point of the road and he continued on his pace slightly above the speed limit. Back in our female's car, she's cussing up a storm because she thinks the man is trying to kill her. Realizing she's out of space, time, and driving competence, she vows to take him out as well, this innocent, unknowing red herring of her "driving" blame. She nails the barrier, bouncing off in good Newtonian predictability, and slams into him...instantly totaling her car, and making his passenger side door his new arm rest. She fumes, stays incredulous...blames the guy because it's obviously his fault. As was the accident that totaled her first car. No matter what people say, that bus full of kids was going 80 and forced her off the interstate in a move that would make Dale jealous.

(yes, I'm on a muted conference call)

you're postponing your wedding 2 years b/c of this? I don't think that's necessary...is it? It's not like you're having to drop 25k all at once on a new car.... if it were me...finance a new/used car..and scale back on the wedding costs..2 years is a long time to wait IMO
