It is a nightmare scenario for anyone if they experience this happening to a loved one. Just this evening on the way home I had a "shake my head" moment as I was traveling home on I-84 just after the "super 7" junction, a small Mini-Cooper came flying up from behind and got within a foot of my bumper, keep in mind we are all going about 75 MPH and my little-car-owning buddy wanted to go at least 90. He swerved around me, cut off about 5 other people, and disappeared into the Waterbury exit. It is an absolute miracle that we make it home each night considering how some folks drive out there, and this incident should remind us to be careful and slow the f*** down!
