Rest for the starving artists

So on the drive home, being stuck on I66 in traffic caused by an accident (which causes all traffic on I66) I came to a realization about Virginia drivers- they are all stupid. In light of this fact, rather than complaining about it, like many of my fellow drivers, I have decided to impart some of my wisdom on to those who would appreciate it.

1) Quit riding my bumper. A majority of the accidents are minor fender benders, which are caused by some jerk ass riding so close to the person in front of them that they cannot see their brake lights, being that said brake lights are already right underneath the front fender of their massive SUV.

2) When you do inevitably cause an accident, a good place to stop isn't the third lane of a four lane interstate highway.

3) Some jack-ass rear ended another jack-ass. You don't need to slow down. You see one every day. It's old hat now.

4) Those funny looking white lines on the road: if you're not between them and you're not merging, you're doing something wrong.

5) If someone gives you the finger, you probably deserve it.

I hope that is of some value to the commuters. I'll be back next week with proper Metro etiquette.

if the speed limit is 45 ( ala 3rd street tunnel) you dont need to go 25 MPH to not get a ticket. 45 MPH will suffice.even 47. no shit.
