Driving down the road this morning going about 35mph when this black Nissan Murano (path shown in green) darted out of a parking lot right past a stopped Coca-Cola truck. Had I been paying less attention I would have t-boned her. I’m the blue arrow. She didn’t brake, in fact I don’t think she even saw me until I laid on the horn. I don’t understand how some people get in their cars in the morning and just say, “Eh, fuck it. Why check to see if there’s any cross-traffic?” I had to absolutely slam on the brakes to stop in time. ABS kicked in immediately - had I been in my old Honda without ABS I definitely would have hit her because the road was wet and the brakes surely would have locked up.

Be safe out there, guys. There are terrible drivers (can they even be called drivers?) in our midst.
