Well,Rog,you no doubt have a point.You're dead on about the mindset too.But I once had to drive my wife 85 mi. to Columbus when my boy was about to be born.I hit 120mph once because there was zero traffic at 2 or 3 in the morning on that 4-lane.But driving at higher speed ,worried as I was,made me MORE VIGILANT as to what was ahead.The baby was stuck under her `pubic arch' and we were in serious trouble.A wonderful old doctor,a specialist with forceps, saved their lives at Grant Hospital.Well,back to the present.You really had to be there,I think.Here was a totally open 4-lane highway,no traffic for half a mile or more,and he dives into MY lane?Sounds like intended harm to me!Sure looked like it.Besides Rog,bullets don't blow tires,they spew out the air.Ever seen the police videos of a crook that runs over the police spikes?Tires aren't like the old days.Tubes inside a tire were like bombs and blowouts were common.A wise, old mechanic told me years ago:`You always should run tubeless tires.They'll spew out air where tube type tires will explode.' I would even feel safer on my `peds with a tubeless tire,but I think they're all tube type.So if I HAD shot out a tire,I don't think it would have thrown that big pickup into too bad of a spin.But maybe I won't shoot `em out.I'll try to look at the license number,MAYBE ! I thought yesterday that I ought to `stake out' that road at the same time and watch for white F-150s to come by.I'm still worried he's gonna kill some cyclist or mopeder.
