Traveling into work and I’m at the intersection of 4th Avenue and Grant. A maroon, full-size pickup truck (PA Plate YCF-6605) spins his wheels off of 3rd and onto Grant behind me.
The operator yells for me to get off the road. I said that I would not get off the road. He then yells that he will run me over with his truck and proceeds to rev his engine.
I proceed through the red in the left lane on Grant. I am in traffic, not impeding anyone. He speeds past me from the right lane by traveling through a redlight at 6th Avenue.
I stopped an officer (Car #3SE3)on 21st street near my office in the strip. I gave him the plate number and my business card. He said that he would run the plate and send out a bulletin on the vehicle for erratic driving, harassment, etc.
I can recall encountering this same truck a few months back at 3rd and Grant. Same spinning wheels…
Glad you’re ok. I hope the police catch this guy and give him a massive fine.
Yesterday a young woman talking on her cell phone blew through a stop sign on Ellsworth. I caught up to her at the next light and told her she should get off her phone and pay attention. She said “you were in the middle of the road! You could die!” I just said “Well if I die it’ll be because someone like you hit and killed me!”
Seems like yesterday (Wednesday) was road rage day. Maybe it was because there was alot of people going back to work after having a few days off but all I know is I got harassed and passed uncomfortably close by 3 cars on my way to work in the morning. The best was a woman that just had to pass me on sycamore st while the road was wet and going by men working in the street. On top of it she felt the need to flip me off and yell at me as she sped by. I continued going the same speed and pulled up next to her 4 seconds after she passed me at the stop sign at the bottom of sycamore. When I told her the pass she made over 2 solid yellow lines was illegal she started screaming at me at the top of her lungs telling me im making her later for her appointment and the old classic “I drive on this road everyday”. Then called me every name in the book and gave me the fingers as she sped off for her appointment. I can only assume she was late for her straight jacket fitting.
Erok, I did laugh at her then told her to drive faster.
Lyle, yea it wasent just the passing that bothered me it was the riding my ass the whole way down the hill while I was going the speed limit thru a work area with flag men at either end and various cones and signs telling the traffic to go slow. Then passing me closely while flipping me off and yelling just to get to a stop sign that I was arriving at in about 4 seconds myself. Matter a fact after she took the left onto arlington ave we both sat at the red light at the bottom of the hill for a min arguing, no actually it was her screaming insanely and me standing there with my mouth hanging open.
