Default Not so smart

I followed this guy home today up Telegraph from Dearborn to about 16 mile.

He drove like an idiot in this little skateboard of a car. I cannot believe that chances that he was taking changing lanes. The car is so narrow it looks like it would roll over if it got hit with my exhaust stream. :tonka:

btw It had a M plate on it

Yeah Smart car. very very narrow, short length and a tall cabin. I would not drive over 50mph on the Mackinac that's for sure.

There always seemed to be Chrysler Minivans with an M Plate on em, that routinely passed me on I75 South between Holly Road and Auburn Hills between the hours of 6:30 am and 8:00 am at very high velocities, using all three lanes, and sometimes the shoulder. Once starting down the exit ramp to Dixie, then darting back onto I75 to pass a rolling traffic blockade.

I sure don't miss commuting down that way...

I have driven quite a few M plates and occassionally on Telegraph I would be a bit aggressive after an hour commute home. But I don't believe that I would attempt any of the manuevers that this guy was doing in this go kart of a car.

I had to drive like mad just to get that picture, he must be a crotch rocket driver as he was changing lanes with a similar amount of room between him and the other cars.

:tonka:.........When the Vipers were first coming out too......I was passenger and we came up on vehicles on 75 so quickly damn near locked up the brakes to slow down in time.
