What the...?!?...
I am really tired of drivers being pissed off because I happen to follow the rules and not treat them as optional. If there are speed limits and you feel like breaking them, be my guest! But don't you there honk or swear because I choose not to!

I have seen plenty of crazy drivers this weekend. Crazy to the extent of taking unnecessary risks every other minute. Well, it's a free country, risk killing yourself, risk killing others, but please don't act as if you are right and I should stay off the road for driving as I should.

Two accidents with pretty messy consequences happened on Sunday. And that on my way back to Bucharest alone. Is it really worth it? Trading your life and others lives or serious injuries for half an hour? I doubt it. So next time any of you out there thinks of giving angry looks and honking, think again. If you don't, well, then you might be crazy or an idiot...My take on this!

    Unfortunately, innocent people die all the time because of those idiots. I agree with you, it's not worth speeding up like crazy. In the best case scenario, you gain 20 minutes at a 5 hours drive (or you gain your free ticket to the skies sooner than expected). Too bad those people don't do the math to see this.

    Hi Simmone, thanks for the visit :)
    You are right, maths is not their strength..

    Actually I hope to become the proud owner of a motorcycle in the not-so-far future... Yes, I would risk my life at anything between 50 and 350 km/h ... the difference is you go out with a smile and far less pain.

    I'm sorry I'm not the law type of guy... law is for lawyers to find a way around and make politicians busy enough not too steal too much.

    I also happen to hate seeing idiots driving so fast without any second thoughts, but what I do hate the most is when they even brag about it.

    NetBoy, your life is yours to risk. But you have no right in risking lives of others. And as there are no roads on which you can drive without meeting other drivers, I think you should reconsider. Moreover, abiding the law or not is your choice, blaming others for abiding it, that is really something else.

    Trisi, I agree with you there. I hate those acting like you are a criminal for not breaking the law even more though...

    It's the adrenaline rush. More powerful and addictive than any drug out there. And some cars are made to be driven fast.

    That's why I don't have a drivers license/car (yet) - I couldn't resist not stepping on it. As for motorcycles, I think I'd rather buy an enduro than a sport model, so maybe it'll be safer (for others) if I get a bike instead of a car.

    Ryan, it's true, it's hard to control. But not impossible. And taking wild risks for nothing is never really smart...

    I think having a powerful car could actually make you more patient, you have nothing more to prove... As for motorcycles, they are far less dangerous for bystanders and make you ignore the lazy drivers as you fly by them...

    Driving by the law applies in only so many cases... there are situations that were not foreseen by the lawmakers, one of them is the advent of the V8...

    Well, NetBoy, they might be less dangerous, but they are still dangerous. from the people I know owning a motorcycle, none got away without being hospitalized at least once :)

    Sim, I have broken the law a few time. I paid for it each time, more than needed, while others got away with it, when being clearly guilty, unlike my cases. I do occasionally break speed limits by 5 to 10 km per hour...still, that happens rarely and I try to never do it at all.
