Red Light Runner's Piss Me Off To No End


Here's one of those rants I mentioned would come in my first blog. What is the deal with RED LIGHT RUNNER's!! They piss me off to no end. I mean seriously - I want to ask these a**holes what makes them so special. And I'm not talking about going faster to make the light while it's still yellow - I'm talking the deliberate, 'I-am-above-the-law' runner's. First of all, they rarely get caught. If they did - I wouldn't see this problem on a DAILY basis. I know some are just arrogant bastards and some just chose not to read. I used to work in this one area, where there was clearly a "keep this area clear" spot on the road - written in the six foot tall letters with the giant white lines framing it. Nearly every day I would have jackas**es honking at me because I was obeying the law. I even saw a guy shaking his fists at me one time. THE LIGHT WAS RED JERK!! Today, as with many days, there is clearly a 'no turn on red sign' at an intersection near my current home - yet, people who are above the law, constantly run it. The best one is when your light has turned green and one...two...three...four cars are still going from the previous green. Really, I want to ask these people who they think they are! One time a red light runner totaled my car, after his Titanic of a vehicle shoved me into the intersection, where I smashed into another car, that smashed into another car. My seat broke, I flew up and hit the winshield. Ya, I had the seatbelt on, but the seat broke!! I don't know what happened to the gal that was taken away strapped down to a stretcher, but as for me, well, I lost my car and got no insurance for it. You see, I had to choose between school books and car insurance that month - couldn't do both. I lost my car, couldn't go to school, spent two weeks in bed in drugs and six months at the chiropractor. You know what his excuse was - he said he "didn't have time to stop". But causing an accident and ruining lives was a viable option!!! A time saver!! I wanted to beat that muther fu**er with my tennis racket, but I couldn't find the trunk of my car to get it! So if you're a habitual red light runner who happens to be reading this - think about the lives you can ruin because your'e apparently above the law. If you're a habitual red light runner who happens to be reading this - please tell me why you pepole do this sh**. Anyone else, feel free to comment or share your tales. This is an epidemic that must be stopped!!! These people must pay!

OMG, you are so singing my song with this one! Although I would love to add anyone who drives with a deliberate recklessness and without courtesy or any thought whatsoever to their fellow drivers.

...and I laughed at the sentence "What makes you so special?" That's what I scream through my windshield whenever I run into one of these assholes.
