Here we usually call them DWA's or "Driving While Asian"



We also get our share of save the earth lefties in Subaru's and Priuseseses that do 60 in the HOV lanes. I find high beams in the passanger side mirror usually gets their dander up enough to find the gas pedal.



That or I pass them on the shoulder and go on about my business

Not that I'm condoning their actions - but at least they didn't destroy any gravestones or dig anyone up.



Yes, there seems to be a problem with that in this area.

Default Re: WTF!?!?!?

Folks here (Seattle area) get annoyed when anyone on a motorcycle passes them it seems even when it's in the carpool lane during rush hour. It's as if they want everyone to be stuck with them in traffic.



The WA State Patrol seems to be doing a full blitz on anyone doing anything that's not letter-off-the-law legal recently. They're putting up planes at night and putting out extra "seatbelt enforcement" patrols at night as well. I see the last part to be a thin guise to pull drivers over because it looked like your seatbelt wasn't on... and then find some other reason to fine/arrest them.



I swear that western WA is getting over protected lately. In 2005 when I rode down to MotoGP I saw way more state patrol cars in WA than I did in OR and CA combined (apparently OR has no $$$ to fund troopers).

I'm a real liberal too. I completely agree with you about the little **** munchers. You know it has to be either hippy high school kids or some crazed lunatic out there on Orcas island who did that. It's basically either a stupid kid or a real Nazi.



I think us liberals (as a group) are frequently dumb as rocks filled with group-think, and we make great targets for comedy. Unlike conservatives of course, who are wise and staid.

I learned the term DWA from a Vietnamese developer of mine.



My favorite peeve is the white minivan in the fast lane going slightly under the speed limit, usually DWA.



Careful passing them on the shoulder and going about your business, you saw the video.

Now THAT'S how to score a point with sly humor. Well taken. You're pretty smart for a dirty hippie.



I think we can agree the more, um, "enthusiastic" members of both sides are a-holes.

The great thing about liberals is even the unenthusiastic ones can be a-holes. They're just informed enough to know what they're supposed to believe.



I guess that goes for the run-of-the-mill conservatives too actually. Jesus told my pastor that Saddam and Bin Laden are best friends.
