Lubbock has some AWFUL drivers
Every town is known for something.
Some cities are known for terrible weather, others for good schools, specific styles of cuisine, you name it. Lubbock...from what I can gather...is known for Buddy Holly, The Red Raiders, and...lousy freakin' drivers.
I know this, from first hand knowledge.
Not once, nor twice...
...but THREE times this weekend, I was either cut off in traffic or narrowly avoided an accident because of a driver who was clearly not paying attention.
Yeah, I was fully ready to share a certain digit with Hub City drivers. But, I digress.
First time was on Slide Road at 98th...when an inattentive girl on her phone started to drift over into my lane. One quick honk later, and I got her attention.
Second time was near 82nd and Indiana, when someone making a right onto Indiana pulled out directly in front of me. Mercifully...I had my brakes replaced a few weeks back. I guess they work...
Finally, I was on I-27 headed north when another driver merging onto the highway decided that I was invisible, and pulled directly in front of me and then proceeded all the way into the left lane like nothing happened. I was able to pull alogside the other driver, however...they must have known I was irate, because they did everything in their power not to look over at me. I was SO tempted to get into the left lane and return the favor...but I was exiting off the Interstate, and was only able to give them "The Look".
Scary huh? Drive carefully...or you'll get "The Look", too.
