:BAHA: I have the best one ever!!!!

I was leaving work this weekend and right down the street is a Sheriff Substation, I see a Sheriff drive by when I am closing up shop, and 5 mins. later as I am waiting to pull out into the road, the same sheriff drives by reading a report, i mean this report was covering the entire steering wheel and the cop had his head down reading it!!

I will never forget this. It's not real crazy or anything, but here goes. it was the day of my HS graduation and after the rehersal my buddy and I dropped some acid. Just one hit each. So we were on break until the actual graduation. We were going to the bank and we parked in a parking deck. While we were walking we were watching this lady driving into the deck. i don't know what she was doing but she ran over a median type of deal and her seat was so far forward she hit her head on the windsheild. Not breaking it, but definately hit it. Him and i just started to literaly roll on the ground laughing our asses off. She like bounced a few times from her going up on the median and then coming back down off of it. We were no more than 20 feet away. It was hilarious! she was OK.

Setting a great example!

I couldn't even start to list all the stupid things I've seen people do. One of the most impressive was one lady eating cerial from bowl. Milk and all with a spoon and tending to a baby while driving 55mph on the highway.

i was riding down rte 9 on the westbound side of the highway.. four lane highway with jersey barriers dividing the two directions.. well i see blue hair and knuckles headed right at me in an 80's buick roadmaster wagon... yep the lady had to be in her 80's and about 4 foot 12 inches tall and weighed about 90 lbs...

i swear after you turn 70 you should have to take a drivers re-liscencing course once every 2 years and once a year after 80.... once you hit 90 it should be weekly.... i don't know who is more dangerous a 16 year old with no driving experience or an 85 year old who can't remember her kids names..

Id have to say the 85 year old..cause they probably have cataracts.

I saw the same thing one time in these woods while on acid.... Only the driver was a crucified Jesus that was on fire... Oh wait, maybe that didn't happen...

I had a link long ago to a website where I guy mounted a camcorder in his car to show someone all the bad drivers in his area... He let it get totally out of control with tons, possibly hundreds, of hours of video with some horrific driving...

I really hope someone else out there knows what I am talking about because my Googling is getting me nowhere...

I've seen people cruising down the hiway reading a newspaper....covering the whole wheel, head down. Like Rae...only it wasn't a cop.

I've also seen someone come to a dead stop on Rt. 17 in North Jersey to read directions...in the middle land of a 3 lane hiway. I couldn't believe they didn't get hit.

On the same road I saw someone stop and go in reverse...STILL IN THE LANE...to get back to an exit they missed.

I had a buddy in college who could roll one up one handed, while eating a cheeseburger in the other hand and driving with his knee...
