Am I lacking in sensitivity?
I saw the lights in my mirror several hundred feet back. Medium traffic on a freeway, well past dark. Guy must have been doing 100 or better in a 60 zone, driving an RX7, I think. He was cutting in and out of lanes and endangering everyone on the road. About a football field in front of me he decided to cut from the left lane of the 3 lane road all the way to the right and go down an exit ramp. Unfortunately for him, he forgot it was winter and a lot of sand from the road treatments had accumulated to the side where cars had thrown it.
Well, he steered very close to the concrete divider and got into the sand. Result-- a 360 + enough extra to head on into the concrete wall on the right.
I sincerely hope he wasn't hurt, but to tell the truth, I almost died laughing at the time. If anyone ever deserved to self destruct, this maniac did.
