The "safe by my home only" driver deserves to be slapped. I'm driving home on the freeway, and this dude tailgates me on a 70 mph stretch, snaps around me like he's playing Gran Turismo 4, then cuts me off in traffic. I get to the stoplight at the bottom to the off ramp and he squeals the tires off in front of me and shoots around the bend. Coming up on my townhouse development, it turns out this bubble-gum-flavor scientist lives near me. The speed limit, 50 mph. His speed? 35 mph. If you drive like a maniac blowing off all speed limits then slow down below the speed limit to be safe in your own neighborhood, you deserve to have your head repeatedly struck with a tire iron. Jerk.
