Plenty of weirdos on the road today... Anyone here drive 287 in Northern NJ? Particularly the 39-59 exit route....You know some dangerous driving goes on there....and it's only a matter of time untill I become part of an accident like I almost did today... First idiocy... There's an exit around 40, that ALWAYS causes traffic to slow down and backup. You drive that road regularly, you know you have to get off early to the slow lane. So, knowing this, I get to around 35MPH in a 55 zone, just to be on the safe side. Sure enough, they slow down, I slow down. Just as I start to speed back up again, I see idiot #1 in the last next to me, shoot over my lane, and stop dead. I honk my horn at him....because now he's holding up my lane, and the other lane and almost caused accident 1. I wait till he gets over, honk again to reinform him, 'hey, don't do that moron..', and off I go. Now, everything is fine for the next 10 minutes or so... However...those who drive this road know that it's also full of truckers. Normally, I have no problem with truckers. When they realize they don't own the road, and show the cars the respect we try to show to them, I give them a break and usually let them through. This guy on my left, however, must have had a death wish. I'm in the slow lane, going around 62. The car to the left of me is going 65, and is just a bit ahead. This truck comes BARRELING down on top of this guy, so close, I started to get REALLY nervous and prepare for an accident...but he stops LITTERALLY inches from the guys back bumper and blares on his horn. Now, I'm in between the truck in his blind spot...so I speed up praying this idiot dosn't turn into my lane....this goes on for a minute or so untill someone goes int our lane from an entrance ramp, causing us to stomp on the breaks, and them to get out of our way.. But, That's not all! Now, you tell me if I did the right thing here or not,t because I'm still not sure...I'm traveling around 65....Then I notice another truck pull up past me...Then two Dump trucks filled with gravel...then ANOTHER rig behind me. So, we've got four heavy duty vehicles. I decided to slow down a bit, so I'm not in the guys blind spot, but there's this huge empty space in front of me now for a mile or so... A few minutes later, I smeel trie and rubber burning ahead of the cars..but nothing in site wrong. I finally figure this is a good idea, as the gravel trucks are getting impatient now, going right to my lane, then left back into theres.. Then they stay in their lane untill they make their exit... All this, just as I'm finally getting used to driving again..and then I getthis trip from hell, all the way home.... Any fun 287 stories to share, NJersieans?
