And this is why I stopped road riding a few years ago.People are absolute idiots behind the wheel now. Texting, yapping on cell phones, playing with ipods, eating lunch, reading newspapers, applying makeup, Christ, they do everything behind the wheel EXCEPT drive.
Today alone we had not one, but two close calls while driving. One, a guy completely blew the turn on a back road and was completely in our lane, doing 40 at least on a road posted at 25. Damn near nailed us head on. The second one, we had a green arrow to turn left, and the guy across the way went from the center lane (a straight lane, there was a right turn lane to the right) and suddenly turns right and almost drove into the side of us.
No way will I subject any horses to the lunacy any more. I trailer to trailheads now.
