The Rules of the Road

While every state has rules or laws of how to drive, the one that seems to be omitted or at least most overlooked is this one:

“When coming upon an accident on the opposite side of the road if you are the first to come to the accident check to see if emergency crews are needed or if those involved need assistance. If the authorities or emergency crews are on the scene already DON’T FUCKING STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY TO TRY AND SEE WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON..NO ONE BEHIND YOU WANTS TO WAIT FOR YOU TO MAYBE CATCH A GLIMPSE OF BLOOD OR CARNAGE…EYES STRAIGHT AHEAD, FOOT ON ACCELERATOR…FOR CRYING OUT LOUD KEEP MOVING.”

I certainly hope to submit this to the State of Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles to have added to the future drivers handbook and drivers education courses.

In my 16 years of driving experience I have seen a lot of bad drivers, stupid gawker blocks and my fair share of people stopping and backing up on a highway for missing an exit. In that time I will have to say that C-470 drivers get the award as the WORST FUCKING DRIVERS in the state of Colorado. Sadly this is my main route for commuting to and from work. I just started this drive as I recently bought a home near a highway access point.

This highways seems to have the most weather related and dumb-ass related accidents. Which is hard to believe considering there is nothing really complicated about the highway, there are a few drawn out curves and a couple of hills with great visibility. So why do these drivers suck so bad?

I spent the last 2.5 years driving I-25 NB and 6th Ave WB and I never witnessed driving as bad as this. Plenty of gawker blocks and interesting accidents to take note of on the old commute, but again, 470 drivers take the cake.

If you are a C-470 driver and are reading this, please, for the love of the starving children in America PLEASE focus on driving, whats occurring directly in front, behind, to your sides. Not what has already happened on the other side of the road that has no real impact on our side of the highway other than your need to create a traffic jam because you have the attention span of a gnat.

This has been a public service announcement brought to you by the letters F and U.

  1. THANK YOU!! I’m working on my own “real rules of driving: the unofficial driver’s manual for people who want to survive america’s inconsistent traffic patterns” 😉
    it was great seeing you the other night; we’ll have to make sure to go out more frequently!
