Revoke Their License!

GOD YES! What really pisses me off is people having to pass you as approaching a red light!

WHAT THE F*&@ GOOD IS GETTING TO A RED LIGHT FASTER THAN ME GOING TO DO??!!

And now understand me fully...I will be speeding 5 or 10 over anyway and these psychos in 8mpg V12 Excursions will get up on my bumper and then go flying around me to a red light clearly visible. Oh, excuse me, I didn't know I was supposed to accelerate to a STOP!

The problem is these new cars have such good brakes that it encourages this tomfoolery. People think they need to go down the street as fast as possible until the last moment their brakes can stop them without careening into the intersection.

I drive a turbo and I don't go particularly slow and this happens to me at least twice every day. I love the idea of shooting brake fluid at their cars. It's grossly impractical and offensive. PERFECT!
