HAHAHAHA! No I'm bad I felt guilty writing that because I tailgated someone on the way to the store this morning. When you come to a passing lane too all the slow cars that one wants to pass speed up too it's a real PITA I think when you say bad drivers or worst drivers it not so much a lack of skill but an overload of agression, it's a race I'm not sure where too but it just is...

Man, does traffic ever move outta the way when a big red truck with lights and sirens is fronting you!

The only downside is that I always end up at hospitals and burning buildings...
but at least I make good time getting there!
