She was 80. The cops (4) were making sure that people weren't passing stopped school buses. The old bat took out the guys protecting our kids on one of the most dangerous roads in Atlanta.

And she got a ticket for what $200?

Here a 70+ year old woman hit a mother and child IN A PARKING LOT and dragged them for some distance. I think she got a $600 fine and her license suspended. She said she did see them BTW the child was in a STROLLER!

Good freaking grief.

I like that, "she was swerving to avoid a car that suddenly stopped", Yeah, like for the flippin' school bus perhaps? So she couldn't see two M/C cops, a school bus with it's red blinkers on and the brake lights of the car in front?



I'm sure she's related to someone so they'll tell her "you watch out now Harriet, you might hurt someone next time..." and send her on her way.

There are so many people that should not be driving. I really wish there was some way to just slap someone into realizing that they're responsible for safely directing 3000+ pounds of metal at a high rate of speed.



I commute on my bike every day in Atlanta (ok, when the weather is really bad I'll take the MARTA), and yeah, Buford Highway is one of the worse roads. I also don't much care for Roswell Rd, the I-75 corridor through Marietta, Spaghetti Junction, and the Downtown Connector.



I know it's the same in every city, but people either just have no idea how dangerous they are, or are completely psychotic and don't care about the safety of their fellow human beings.



Every time I put the key in the ignition, two thoughts run through my head: "I'm going to have a good time" and "I might die". If I can't reconcile the two, I don't turn the key. It gives you the proper mindset to both stay loose and keep alert.

Is this before or after coffee?

Before Coffee:

No one has fun.

It's the other folks who are in danger of being killed.



After Coffee:

It's all good.
