Thumbs down Really Disappointed :(

Tonight I was taking the hearse back to the Funeral Home where we keep it and was on the interstate in coming up on some decent traffic about a quarter-half mile in front of me doing about 70-75. When all of a sudden this car flys by me like I was standing still and sounded fantastic, interested in what it was I got the NorthStar kicking to try and catch up a little bit. It was a Lemans E92 with Vanity Virginia tags (which I wont list) this guy must have been doing at least 120 up to where traffic thickened up, then he proceeded to cut off at least a dozen cars and several close accidents. If this wasn't bad enough every time he would cut some one off he would brake check them because "they were too close" I suppose even though he was being the ass hat. Then to top it off he cuts across both lanes cutting off 2 other cars to get off on the next exit which he barely made hard on the brakes. I seriously thought he was going to take out the sign, with how much speed he was carrying into the sharp turn ahead.

I was really disappointed and some what angered at what I was witnessing, its people like this that give us all a bad "douche-bag" reputation when people see our cars on the road. I'll be the first to admit I drive faster than the speed limit but only when it allows, I cannot stand people who jeopardize dozens of others lives because they fell the need to show off the have a high performance car.

End Rant

+1 Talk about the Grim Reaper coming after you. At least there is no back seat drivers in the hearse though

I like to think that this kind of driving will always catch up with the perpetrator in the end. Hopefully he doesn't take out any innocent bystanders when it does.

I hate that d-bag pricks like this always seem to get away with driving like maniacs while little ol' me gets pulled over and ticketed for driving ~10 over the [inconspicuously] posted speed limit.

I hate people that weave in and out like that. My thing is if I have to use my brakes on the highway I'm doing something wrong, oh, and I never slice

I try and be as courteous as possible, especially since I drive a nicer car. So I agree with you, OP. Driving like that is dangerous, pointless, and irresponsible. Unless it was a real emergency, like his wife was dying, or dad, or his wife went into labor and he had to go get/meet her.

Some people just think because they have the nice car, it gives them the license to be an asshole, and/or think they're the best driver in the world.
