Must Have Item - Camera!

I don't know if you guys have a disposable camera in your car but if you don't get one. Just today there was a lady that was within an inch of hitting my car. I was in a turning lane to the right and she was in the center without a turn signal. All of a sudden she began moving to the right still without a turn signal. After I slammed on the horn she looked and stopped one inch from my car. I immediately started snapping pictures of her position and her face just in case she somehow continued to move. Luckily nothing happened but I am glad that I had the documentation just in case...

By the way, I have a speed yellow car with a turn signal on...you would think that it is kind of hard to miss...

You're right......a speedyellow Box IS hard to miss!

Unless of course you're not looking where you're going!

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Nickles would be cheaper, buckshot more satisfying!

Digital cameras are great for snapping the picture of the guy having a road rage fit. You know...the guy who thinks your going to slow and violently swerves across lanes to get around you only to be stoped by a red light. His music is going thump, thump, his seat is so far back he may as well be sleeping, the bluetooth headset pasted to his ear with multi colored LEDs flashing madly, and he's pissed at you because he didn't make the light and apparently you just ruined his perfect day. Icing on the cake...TAKE HIS PICTURE!!!!! You won't believe the reaction!!! They usually go absolutely nuts yet are afraid to do anything about it because they have been capuired on film. Very powerful what a camera can do.

ah, the things you can do when YOU DON"T live in southern California! Actually, you could do those things on a soCal freeway, but you better have bigger gun or aluminum bat in your car then the a-hole who is having a bad day, cuz most likely, he's gonna pull his. Needless to say, working in the ER or Trauma in soCal makes for very interesting experiences and training b/c of the variety of a-hole out here!

Chicagoans talk the talk but don't walk the walk when it comes to being Mr. Tough Guy. When the picture is taken they get irritated but quickly realize they are on film and anything they do will only damage themselves. ... Now that I think of it...maybe were a bit SMARTER!

yeah, there's something definitely different as you get further east. in soCal, laying on the horn in stopped traffic is unheard of, but anytime I've been to chicago, my god if it takes you more than a nanosecond to step on the gas at a green light, the whole frickin city starts honking!
