78: Ambulances are both expensive and, in the case of people like me that live in the middle of nowhere, take an extremely long time to arrive. I can get someone to the hospital in my truck before an ambulance would even show up. What's up with you people and actually believing the system works?
101 you say the law is not always right.. but it is there for a reason.. to protect innocent drivers from idiots idiots who want to speed and run lights. you say you called an ambulance and made it to the hospital faster.. so either you left b4 it got there or sped to the hospital after the person was in it.. which either one would make no sense at all.. you're obviously not a paramedic.. let them do their jobs
110 and yet you knowingly and willingly break the law.. you're completely ignorant and have no respect for anyone else.. which is obvious by your blatant disregard of the safety of every other driver on the road.. people like you need to have their license permanently revoked
I'm pretty sure speeding is illegal no matter what. If it's a medical emergency, call an ambulance. You don't get special rights if something's wrong and you're not in a state car such as an ambuland/fire engine/ etc. And by the way, not all speeders are "teenagers acting like twats". Usually they're self-absorbed, middle-aged assholes who like to blame everything on sixteen year old girls. THAT'S why I don't have my license yet, because I'm afraid some dick is going to ram right into me because he doesn't like that I'm going the speed limit in the left lane when he wants to go twenty over.
124: He's not bitching about a speeding ticket, which would have been the natural and foreseeable cost of his decision to speed. He's bitching about people weighing in on his decision to take that risk, by illegally blocking him into a traffic jam when they have no authority to act as a representative of the law. It's a more moderate form of vigilantism. Vigilantes or meddlers assume they're doing the "just" thing, when in reality, they're just breaking a different law-- which is exactly what the other drivers were all pissed at oc for doing in the first place
way to make yourself look like a dumb cunt... oh and this is very typical of Texan drivers, I should know...I live in Texas :
Ahh, shit you have a point. I've been to San Marcos, which is pretty damn close to Austin, and they had horrible drivers - so I can see where your frustration comes from. I stay in Houston though, so I think we have the worst of the worst when it comes to drivers. :P But I think I've grown so accustomed to it that I don't notice anymore.
I fantasizing about instaling somekind of device that shoots rusty nails into the tires of ppl who anger me.
I love it when this happens to people. Next time pay attention yourself :)
I can't speak for what country you're in, but in a lot of western countries motorcycles are actually allowed to move up in between cars so long as traffic has stopped. Yet they still get dickheads opening doors on them and swerving to block them. Mate of mine got his ribs broken because of that. Car doors hurt.
