    I never have til today. So far I have evaded 2 morons! First an old lady that did not yield at a yield sign, and second, a car full of dumb teenage girls that were pulling out into a 4 way intersection and I was turning! :mad: Keep in mind I was towing a trailer loaded with quads, and my dirt bike in the back both times, how can they not see that coming? Unbelievable, the old lady was probably too blind to be driving, and the girls were probably too busy texting to be driving. Every time I drive one of my old beaters around it never happens. I have parked the truck safely in the garage, hopefully by tomorrow the target wears off it! Sorry to vent, but I had to, anyone else have a story to share?

    Yes, had many days like this...

    This is some wheelhouse/maritime navigation logic - but it applies to driving as well...

    Don't assume anything. The other driver probably doesn't know the rules of the road. They'll choose/do the stupidest action possible. Be prepared. Have an escape plan if the shit hits the fan.
