This is not a scream clip. It will make you wonder though.

When I was a younger I always wanted a bumper sticker that read "The line is MINE".

I hate bikes that ride on the white line and cause me to creep over towords oncomming traffic......when they heard the Holley double pumper open up behind them they usually got back on their side.

When I had my 71 Chrysler Newport the bikes usually stayed away for some reason.

My first car was a 71' Pontiac Catalina; I needed the white line. That era was the biggest of the big.

The test instructs you to count the number of passes so you focus on the ball only. It's not like on the road where you're looking around constantly.

Bikes are somewhat annoying especially when they don't fall into a straight line when you approach from behind. I really wish the roads were designed with a lane for bikes.

There's a message there for automobile drivers.

There's also a message there for cyclists (and motorcyclists, and pedestrians).

I always double check and look back when changing lanes so I don't squash anyone on a motor or bicycle. Missed the dancing bear.
