Let's Just Go Ahead and Calm Down, Drivers

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Listen, I understand that people are terrible drivers. We seem to be surrounded by them, even if somehow we're the one person who understands the rules of the road at any given time. As my son will remind nearly anyone he talks to (sigh), I'm not above giving someone the finger, but next time, I'll take a deep breath, try to calm down, and not flip my car while "flipping the bird":

A woman caused an accident SR 512 on Monday when she lost control of her vehicle as she was giving another driver “the bird,” the Washington State Patrol said.

The 23-year-old woman, driving a 2004 Taurus, was traveling eastbound next to a Subaru Outback, the State Patrol said.

She wanted to get over to the right lane, but it was occupied so she flipped off the driver of the Outback. As she was doing so she lost control of her vehicle and hit the back end of the Outback, causing it to run off the road and roll over. She ended up in a ditch further down the roadway.
