Cops score a double

Near where I live there is a speedtrap. That is to say, there are almost always radar cops there. I have learned to obey the speed limit when driving this four blocks or so stretch. Today, as I'm driving thru, there are two cars pulled over and getting ticketed. Two Dodge Challengers. I suspect they have been doing a little street racing.
I shouldn't admit this, but in my youth, when I was driving Alfas, I used to suck guys into that trap, particulary Porsches. There's a stoplight that is downhill from the trap. I used to rev up the engine when stopped next to another sports car, and punch the gas when the light turned green. When I got near the top of the hill I would slam on the brakes as my opponent went flying by into the arms of the cops. Childish, but fun.

That is downright deceitful and mean. Hopefully it is something you grew out of as you matured.

About 2 hours ago some lady in a honda CR-V thought I was driving too slow in my neighborhood and tried to pass me on a two way street. As soon as I saw her get into the on coming lane I speed up quick leaving her next to me with cars coming straight at her...sucks for her she almost caused a head on collision. I bet I made her pee alittle. (Don't worry guys im not that mean i saw how fast the other car was coming at her and slammed on my brakes so she could get in front of me but then i gave her the longest honk shes ever heard) Thats what happens when you mess with someone who was already going over the neighborhood speed limit.
whaaaaaaa...

It's also illegal to speed up if somebody is trying to pass you. If she had gotten into a wreck, it would have been your fault.

I have forced people off the road for doing crap like this to me. Careful who you screw with on the roads. And leave the playground games on the playground.

People have been thrown in jail for this - especially when a death is caused.

I like to follow them home. Then park in front of their house for about 15 minutes, while pretending to talk on the phone, and while looking/pointing at their house. Gives them something to wonder about for a few weeks.
