    Why are there some people in the province areas determined to keep their asses on the roadway irregardless of the speed, size or stability of the vehicles driving right towards them in that lane? :eek::eek::eek:

    And nighttime is the worse time. :(:(:(

    Do they not realize that oncoming traffic sometimes dictates driving onto their "chair" to avoid a collision? :confused::confused::confused:

    This does not compute...this does not compute...this does not compute..

    Even thick clouds of exhaust smoke blowing on them every few minutes is not enough to encourage them to find a more comfortable, safer place to stand by.

    Simply mount a stainless steel antenna on a spring low on the passenger side of the vehicle. When driving at night in areas where this is common, turn the antenna sideways so it sticks out. The next night when you pass, there will be NOBODY sitting on the road!

    :wink:

    Hi Larry I like your idea, you have got me thinking:D ! mount another washer bottle on the car filled with urine or something worse with the nozzle facing towards the road side, just a simple push of the button and bobs your uncle, maybe fluro dye so you know who you got the previous time you drove past:D

    They think the roadside is an extension of their sitting room. About the headlights constantly on high beam, I think it's because they have dark-tinted wind shields. Mount some high-brightness lamps on your vehicle and use them whenever you encounter these annoying c***s.

    To grasp the power of your post, is the 2nd letter an O or an H or a U? If none of the above, I am surprised. lol
