That, and the drivers whose previous driving experience amounts to driving ox carts through rice paddies...

LOL! Welcome to Washington, D.C. Where that driver tailgating you has no insurance and diplomatic immunity.

One of the two times in my life that I truly thought I was going to die was on the approach to that bridge from Tyson’s Corner. I came up over a rise and had to slam on my brakes because it was a parking lot in front of me that could not be seen from “upstream.”

I quickly looked in my rear view mirror and saw a Mac truck barreling down on me with no place to go. I blurted out “Jesus, save me!”, which was very uncharacteristic. I don’t know what happened to the truck, but somehow he avoided me and everyone else.

I was newly married at the time and was commuting to Tyson’s Corner from northeast Baltimore. We were expecting our first kid. I took it as a sign that God didn’t want me to make that commute anymore, so I found a job in Baltimore and have had reasonable commutes since. That was over 30 years ago. One of the best decisions I ever made to make sure my commutes from then on were short and safe.

Sounds like the makings of a new Allstate Mayhem commercial :-)
