Honda drivers where looking real bad in Tulsa yesterday. These where not the ricer kids and young adults. It was my middle aged peers.
Coming in yesterday morning just south of Glenpool on hwy 75 a lady in a 03/04 Accord LX Sedan runs a stop sign on hwy 75. Report I got from a first responder I know claims she was chating on her cellphone and putting on her makeup. Had lived the area for years. No stranger to the stop sign. Hell Ive seen her and the car many a morning. And she is allways doing something else than focusing on her driving. Anyway running the stop sign at 45 mph or so put her right in the face of south bound traffic. A older Dodge Ram Charger hit her. No time to brake or anything. Impact point was from the rear of the passenger door and front fender. Both cars came to rest in the center median. The Accord exploded! Engine and tranny where out in the road. Basicly the side and front of the Accord where gone. Paramedics where working her. Life flight came in for the driver of the Dodge. The Dodge driver wasnt wearing a seat belt. The Ram Charger faired well in the wreck and appeared that a clip and afew other parts would get that rig back on the road. Was a bad deal all around.
I forgot my cellphone yesterday. The wife and I left them at home today and are looking into and thinking about not reuping our contract. We are wondering if the insanity created with these deviecs is worth it. I pull over when I get a call when driving and never make one while moving. Truth be told. 99.9% of the cellphone calls I receive are utter dribble useless babble. And of course the .1% of calls I make are important!
Then going home yesterday stuck in traffic and surounded by SUV's and Pickup's. A 06 EX Civic Sedan driver makes a ass of himself. A light changes turns green. The Civic driver cant be bothered with the Suburban in front of him thats driving right. The huge SUV isnt bum rushing the light next light. Being easy on the gas,,, doing things right. HE WAS HYPERMILING!
The middle aged dude in the Civic got all up tight,,, whiped out around the SUV and nailed the gas, waging the middle finger and standing on the horn. The light the SUV driver was looking at was red. Yep,, the Civic driver went head on into stoped traffic doing at least 60 mph. It looked like a bowling ball going thru a freshly set bowling pin rack at the local alley. Heading the other way as I was I couldnt see all the damage done by this mental gaint. I looked up at all the heavy metal surrounding me and nobody was smiling at all. They where putting the hate too the Civic driver in there mithes. It was very very uncomphy. All these huge rigs could have crushed my car with little to no damage to theres.
It was a bad day for many drivers at the hands of Honda drivers. Im glad the Okies in there heavy metal didnt take it out on me in the end.
edit: I just found out the lady in the Accord died as a result of her actions. She was the mother of two children and wife of a Sapulpa police officer.
