OK here’s my opinion.
If you’re texting/ staring at your phone while driving, you’re a problem. You’re a danger, and you look stupid. Weaving, jerking the wheel, going way under the speed limit, or over… looking up every few seconds to check out the road? Lame as hell.
A lady in a bmw-750 ran me off the road on a 2 lane road at a sweeping corner, nearly a head on collision, jerking the wheel back towards her lane at the last second as I’m careening off into the gravel heavy on the brakes. She was squarely staring right down at her phone, I saw it all from my higher SUV vantage and, well, because I was watching the road. We were both doing about 35 I’d guess.
If you’re texting/ staring at your phone like 50% of the other folks around you while waiting for a light to turn green, you’re a problem- you take 3+ seconds to go, never taking your eyes off the phone, multiply that by all the folks at the intersection… I’ll honk and you’ll get mad.
Also if you have searing bright non SAE/ DOT approved aftermarket headlights that blind everyone, you’re a jerk and a problem. I’ll flash my brights and you’ll get mad.
Don’t get me started on the guys driving in traffic with light bars/ off road lights on. So cool.
I know I sound like an a-hole, I’m not, just annoyed.
Here’s a suggestion, do an article about non OEM/ DOT approved aftermarket headlights, and see what reaction you get. I read on a forum a guy who wrote something like, “Screw the others who bright me with my 8K nightsplitter low beams in, I’ll sear their retinas with my light bar and if they have a problem I’ve got my 9mm…”
