So what happens? Well they're minding their own business, checking cars... when.... *SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE* *SMASH*.
Somebody, RAN INTO, one of the arrow-trucks...
If there were some sort of mandatory driving re-test to maintain a license, some people would not be able to drive, I swear.
I used to be a law enforcement explorer as a teenager. and we'd often get assigned to direct traffic so police officers could handle more important things. I was directing traffic outside this one mega-church, and nearly got run over one day by a guy who absolutely REFUSED to stop when signaled to do so. I literally had to dive head-first out of the way, due to the fact he swerved towards
me as he floored the gas pedal. I don't know what it is, but something about going to church on Sunday drives some people into a killing rage. The really funny thing about it, is he bore an incredibly striking resemblance to Santa Claus...bushy flowing white beard and hair, very overweight, driving a red 2-seat convertible sports car...I doubt he was very jolly though, after I reported the attempted hit & run (caught on the church's security camera system) and his license plate to the dispatcher on my handy-dandy police-issue radio...
But that's nothing compared to what happened to a local sheriff's deputy outside the same church one day a couple years before my close call...he had to dive away much like I did, but he actually got close enough to leave scuff-marks on the paint from where he pushed off the car as he dove. The driver SLAMMED
on the brakes, jumped out of the car, and SCREAMED
profanities at the deputy as he tried to kick the crap out of said deputy. Why? Because the deputy dared
to damage his car!
