Memo to an Aggresive Driver

To: The driver of the full size green pickup on RT 50 East between exits 11 and 13 near Bowie yesterday around 1:30 pm

From: Me the driver of the blue Vibe that you missed hitting by 3 inches as you crossed four lanes of traffic at well over the speed limit

Re: Is it worth someones life?

I don't know who you are or why you were in such a hurry....but when you cut in front of me yesterday on you way from the far left lane to far right lane you scared the sh*t out of me! Even if I would have survived the initial impact, I would have spun into oncoming traffic going 65+ mph on Rt 50. Would you have even bothered to stop if you clipped me? Would you look in your rear view mirror at the subsequent carnage?

PS I drive in the DC metro area all of the time. There are always careless drivers on the road, weaving in and out of traffic, no signals, tailgating etc. You are the first who really could have killed me.
