Does anyone else out there feel that drivers of today are way worse than of yesteryear?
I can remember when my mother got a ticket for not using her turn signal. Today it doesn’t surprise me when I see a police car make a turn without using a signal. Normal civilians only use them about half the time.
So, if you, my Gentle Readers, are interested, I’m going to start compiling a list of crazy driver types that I have cataloged over the years.
Today’s driver is the “Wide Body.” A wide body driver is someone who drives like their car is verrrrrry wide.
I saw this happen while walking past the library. There’s an admittedly sharp turn for cars to make there, but this gentleman driving a compact car made the turn as if he were a 48 foot semi. He took his sweet time, he went very wide of his own lane, and drove in the opposite lane for about 50 feet before finally merging into his own lane.
If I hadn’t seen it I would have thought it was a joke. If he had been driving a truck it would have been a sweet turn. Perhaps he is a truck driver. I’d like to think a professional could maneuver a vehicle in the right way, no matter what.
So keep an eye out. I’m sure you’ll meet your own wide body soon.
