B-E Aggressive...A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E...

Are you an aggressive driver? You could take this test to find out. I came out a litle higher than the average, but if you drove Interstate 81 in Central Pennsylvania (with apologies to people in the REAL Central Pennsylvania, State College) every day to work, you would too. There's a word that comes to mind...

It's one of the most dangerous sections of road in the country, with people driving much too fast, far too many trucks, due to the huge trucking warehouses that center in the greater Carlisle area, and it's part of a large transcontinental confluence, so there are way too many people that don't know where they are going or what they are doing. It's a recipe for disaster...and road rage. At least I don't go out armed like California drivers...

A driver did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman behind him went ballistic, pounding on her horn and screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to drive through the intersection with him. Still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer.

The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, "I'm awfully sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping the guy off in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Follow Me to Sunday School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car."
