I've lived in Colorado off and on for the last ten years
and something has always bugged me about driving
in this state. Here's the scenario:
You're pulling out of a driveway or turning onto a
highway from a side road. There's a car approaching,
but not so close that it's dangerous for you to pull
out. All of a sudden, the approaching car begins to
speed up, instead of slowing down or even maintaining
their current speed.
What is up with this???
I've only seen this in Colorado. Maybe it happens in
other states too, but I've never noticed it. Is it something
taught here in driver's ed? I would think that if I saw
someone pulling out in front of me, I would at least
maintain my spead...at the very least...let alone slow
down. Are people in that big of a hurry? DUH!
