The problem with insurance

Driving home for lunch this afternoon on the Whitemud, I was passed by a red Chevy Blazer. Keep in mind that the speed limit is 80km/h, I was doing around 95 km/h, and the Blazer passed me like I was standing still. I don’t know for sure, but from what I hear the Blazer is not the safest SUV in the world. Especially not the way the driver was weaving in and out of traffic, not even bothering to signal. Now this might not sound that uncommon, given that it was on the Whitemud after all.

What gets me though, is that the driver of the Blazer was a twenty-something female. And on top of her speeding and weaving, she was talking on her cell phone. Her insurance is probably less than mine. There’s just something incredibly wrong with that.

One Ugly Car!

On Wednesday evening I was driving with Ada to volunteering, and on the way we saw one of the dumbest, ugliest cars ever! It was a Cavalier, circa late 90s, and this is what the guy had done to it:

  • Attempted to put a body kit on the car, but it really only covered the sides and front.
  • Attached what appeared to be chicken wire to the front grill.
  • Painted the entire car an ugly, matte grey-blue.
  • Added a “dual” exhaust.
  • Took off the door handles!

That’s right! We stared at the car, because there were no door handles. We couldn’t figure out how the doors were supposed to open. Anyway, it was a really ugly car. If you’re going to pimp out your ride, at least start with something good, and don’t do a half-assed job.

I should invest in a small camera to keep in my car so that I always have one ready. Would have made an excellent “your caption here” photo!
