Glad you are ok.

I hit a damned sober driver last night, I dunno why they insist on trying to drive on the roads when they know a drunk is trying to get home from the pub.

On a serious note I've recently been in a head on, (memorial day) and it's a scary situation, and an ABRUPT stop.

I also sat next to a woman at lunch today who needed a cab called for her at noon when she passed out on the bar .... drunks are everywhere, and its sad.

Thought that was the norm up there
on a serious note, glad your ok. The truck did what it's supposed to do.

Well, yeah. Since sober drivers cross the centerline at night all the time, right?

Either way it would be assumed that they were drunk.

Ass.

You should have walked over to her (if you weren't in a TON of pain) and smashed her head against the steering wheel a few times. They'd never know the difference.

Seriously, I'm glad your ok. I've seen people's entire life get turned around because of a drunk driver, and the drunk gets off with not much more than a slap on the wrist.
