Angry Hiker would make a great cartoon of these people racing to get places. Last summer while midway through the Dingford, saw a dust cloud and a Baja 1000 truck hauling donkeys towards me. I pulled into the brush but they never really did yield. Hope you won the race fellas! Last week on the MidFork, backing out of a parking space and had to pull forward quick for yet another asshat in a hurry. They didn't even slow down. I get it, "I'm old and in the way." A few days ago while backing out of a parking space at the depot some funny guy claims his "right of way" prize. Seconds later at the 4 minute stoplight this person schools me on "right of way." Had me thinking "who is this child acting like an adult" with 80 peices of trim on the passenger side of his suv? "Safety if we have time?" "Rules of the road." -Angry Hiker

You should see the rally race car drivers at the Safeway near me. 🤬

Then there are the dingbats in such a hurry on regular city streets that they totally ignore stop signs, signals and rules of the road at 4 way stops. Seattle's Fremont neighborhood has a lot more signals than it used to have - I swear another went up in the last month. Anyway, I was headed over to UW hospital last Thursday at 7 am and was stopped at one of those red lights. All of a sudden a car comes zooming around me from behind, goes right through that red light. That happened to me in Fremont one other time, in the late morning. Sheesh. I've seen another new trick more than once at 4 way stops: instead of waiting their turn with cars waiting all around the intersection, these wiseguys do "twosies": a driver will follow the car right in front of them thru the intersection.

Unfortunately the Tesla drivers have taken this crown from the Beamer drivers.

Come over to Whidbey and see how they drive here. While I've been driving about 5 miles over the limit on Highway 525 (at 60) I've been passed several times by people on the shoulder (because there's oncoming traffic). I would guess some of them are approaching 100. We regularly have head-on fatalities here.
