Welcome to Maryland, USA. We will probably be one of the last states to prohibit cell phone usage while operating a motor vehicle. Lately, there have been some douche bags invading the highways and byways driving like shit while yapping on their damn phone. Imagine driving south on I-95 approaching the airport expressway I-195 to BWI
. Clear sunny day, and 65mph. driving conditions with steady to heavy traffic flow. All of a sudden, traffic starts to crawl. Why? Because some asshole is yapping on his cell phone weaving in and out of the lanes while driving 40 mph.! Well, I've calmed down in my middle age when it comes to sharing the road and, I even try to go out of my way being courteous towards other drivers, but this schmuck ignited that old tinge of road rage in me. I did a N.Y.C. style cut him off with no signal.
I smiled at him and he flipped his limp middle finger. I in kind returned the gesture. Sounds childish but, hell if I or any other motorist should be endangered by some inconsiderate boob. I wish our state police would pull these road hogs over. Unfortunately, it will take one of those horrible gore galore multi car pile ups with national coverage of carnage on the interstate to get some laws passed to prevent this. I've encountered better drivers that eat, drink, play with their pet and I believe pleasure themselves while driving. But cell phone yapping drivers suck. Maybe one of them will be so engrossed in their phone talk that if driving in Miami, they will journey into Overtown, here in Baltimore, they will end up at the lovely corner of North and Pennsylvania Avenues and if in Atlantic City on North Arctic Avenue in the inlet section. Can ya hear me now?
