Stupid Drivers Are Universal

Over the weekend I was driving down a major local road and nearly had an accident. I was in my Jetta and going down a left-turn-only lane, past a bunch of cars that were stuck behind a slow moving tanker in the right lane. As I was turning left, I was where I was supposed to be, but a guy that was stuck in the slow traffic opted to change lanes. He cut out in front of me, sans signal of course – hell, he didn’t even look in the lane! – causing me to swerve and stay on the other side of the road, while he took off down the left-turn-only lane. He still ended up behind the tanker, and was sworn at in at least three languages, and I got out unscathed aside from a rare bit of road rage. I do take some solace in the fact that stupid drivers are found everywhere, as BWG points out.
