Didn't Hummers used to have guns?

Gazette staff March 23rd, 2011

Look, we’ve probably all gotten a little road-ragey at some point or another.

(Like when a driver drifts on over to the left lane on the highway — without using the blinker, obviously — and then just chills there going, like, 60, completely oblivious and not a care in the world. The effing left lane is for effing passing, people!)

See? Happens to the best of us. But here’s a little CFN PSA for you: Don’t shoot other drivers in the face. We don’t care how annoying they are (like the girl driving the massive SUV — with a vanity plate — who refuses to let you merge because for some mysterious reason, she considers it an act on par with spitting on the memory of your beloved grandmother), no one deserves to take a bullet to the ol’ noggin.

From Tulsa’s News on 6 comes this charming humanitarian tale: At around 1 a.m. on March 18, a driver was tailgating. (Annoying? Yes, but not worth drawing weapons.)

Anyway, the tailgater and the tailgatee (along with two passengers) stopped and got into some sort of battle of words, said the station. The tailgatee and his buddies got back in their car, but the tailgater wasn’t having it. He reportedly grabbed a gun from his car and opened fire on the other car. And one of those bullets hit the tailgatee in the face. In the cheek!

Shot-in-the-face guy was rushed to the hospital and is expected to recover, but the shooter took off and, as of press time, is missing. The suspect was driving a dark-colored Toyota Celica, so if you see one, better play it safe.

Seriously, people, we know how rude other drivers can be, but no firearms, OK? Stick to flipping the bird.

Flipping the bird probably caused this.

What gets me, is that I often get in the fast lane and do about 10 over the limit.  But for some mysterious reason, there are still people trying to run me down.  As a rule, I try to avoid speeding, but where I get on the interstate in the AM, it's too hard to move into a slower lane because traffic is so dense.  So I go faster, but it's still apparently not enough.  Today I was past by semi-trucks!  Nothing like 30 tons going 20mph over the limit.  

It's getting totally crazy out there, and you'd think with the rising cost of fuel that some people would have the common sense to slow down since most vehicles start decreasing efficiency above 65mph.

Any way, for those readers who get behind me in the fast lane and I'm already speeding, let me issue this warning.  If you flash your lights at me, I'm gonna start doing the speed limit right in front of you.  So stop being a loser and appreciate the fact that I am already accomodating your ignorant driving style.
