Tailgater caught unaware flipping off this wee lass in pink Taurus
A true story: There is justice for some road ragers
Comment about - Tailgating: Wrong righteous driver flashes bird at law abider
By JD Gee
Heidi Caron's op-ed about drivers on 55 ignoring the speed limit elicited howls of laughter. Not that the situation she addresses is funny because, seriously, no, it isn't; it's anything but funny. It did, however, spark a memory of a tale relayed to me years ago by a life long friend - a wee slip of lass, she is - who lived in Louisville at the time.
She, driving a pink Taurus (a critically important fact in light of unfolding events) was, in quick succession, impatiently beeped at, tailgated, unsafely passed, and cut off by a young female driver who then flipped her off before beginning to speed away. (The causative agent for all this? My friend had the temerity to be driving "just" the speed limit.)
At the very split-second the bird flew, Karma of the Cosmos introduced itself to the sweet young thing. She didn't know -- couldn't know, bless her heart! -- that the powderpuff Taurus had been retro-fitted with stealth lights and siren. Neither could she know that my buddy, the driver, was a seasoned veteran of the Louisville police department who rightfully had zero tolerance for road rage.
Can you imagine the wet-your-pants shock of a girly-pink Taurus instantaneously baring its fangs and taking a great hunk out of your sittin'-down parts?
