Last night, while driving on the 210 in Sunland, a car flew past us, doing well over 100. When it got about a quarter of a mile ahead of us, it braked hard, then jerked to the right, cutting off another car and nearly causing two vehicles to crash. Once it cleared those cars, the stupid motherfucker driving it sped off again, weaving in and out of the light traffic without any regard for the safety of the other drivers on the road.
“I hope the only person he kills is himself,” I said, to my wife.
About fifteen minutes later, we were in La Canada, just past JPL, when the entire freeway came to a halt. Emergency crews were in the fast lane, and highway patrol cars were beginning to move drivers over to the right side of the freeway.
“I bet you it’s that stupid guy who almost clipped all those cars,” my wife said. She was right.
He didn’t crash and kill himself, and there weren’t any other cars involved, so it looks like this stupid reckless fuckstain lost control, crashed into the center divider, spun around several times, and ended up blocking the two left lanes. When we passed the scene of the crash, the driver was sitting on the ground, against the center divider, while a paramedic talked with him. He appeared to be young, in his teens or very early twenties.
Luckily, this stupid shithead didn’t kill any innocent, and miraculously he didn’t kill himself. Please take this as a reminder that, when you’re driving, you’re not invincible, you’re not some sort of racecar driver, and there are other people on the road, some of them with families in their car, who’d like to get home safely.
Please don’t drive like an asshole.
