Picture if you will, a 4 lane city street. Construction up ahead, please merge right. I hit my blinker (its not just a good idea, its the law!) and proceed to move to the right.
Low and behold some dumb girl accelerates trying to cut me off so I run right into the orange cones. Do I slow down? No way! I hit the gas and cut her off. She was only about an inch or two from my fender.
What is that old saying? I am older and I have better insurance!
