There are razor blades in Halloween candy and even looking at cannabis will kill you too.

This is the Texas they have been hard at work building. This is the Texas they want. Let them have it. They deserve it

Lesson learned. If someone has their high beams on, shoot first.

I'm starting to think that Adam Something might have a point about how cars atomize culture and that car-centric transportation models might actually be the worst.

Fark Texas.

Surprised none of y'all have posted a helpful picture of a woman with highbeams.

People will lose their shiat over anything on the road.  Once early morning I was exiting a ramp to another street and there was a car stopped dead just after the ramp, no lights, I thought it was abandoned.  I sat behind it for a bit to see if there was any movement and there was none.  There were no other cars around in any direction.  So I started to pull around it to get on my way and there was a dude sitting in the driver's seat and he flipped me off.   I gave him a go ahead motion and he yelled something in spanish and took off.

Lets see if there is a correction on Snopes.

I didn't look to see if this legend was posted, I'm too lazy to Google it. Be my guest.

They were gang members doing an initiation while high on jenkim and on the way to a rainbow party.

Texans are always miserable since money is the only thing that matters to them and they don't have enough to move out of Texas.

Been quite a while since I had a strange woman show me her high beams.

Whoa dude.  The "go ahead" motion in spanish doesn't mean what you think it does.

Done a lot of driving in rural Great White North Texas in my little car, and having your high beams on all the time is a feature not a bug with most of the F-150/250/350 crowd....

Happened to me this summer, in Texas of course...

I'm approaching a four way stop intersection.
Car already stopped at road to my left.
Guy to the left ain't moving after I stopped so I gave a courtesy wave for him to proceed.
M'fer pulls into intersection and tosses me an American Eagle!! WTF?
Like I said, happened in Texas.
 
2022-07-04 11:55:19 AM  
Cameras are cheap enough that dashcams and backup cameras stored to SD card should be required for all new cars. Would certainly help validate this woman's claims.

So what does that friendly wave mean to our Hispanic amigos???

What's acceptable to these snowflakes???

fark people trying to signal other drivers with headlights. Mind your own farking business and follow the rules of the road. These are probably the same imbeciles who yield the right-of-way at a 4-way stop.

After moving here in Texas I'm afraid to give a horn toot when someone is asleep at a green light.
Never felt that way up north in Chicago!
 
2022-07-04 12:03:04 PM  
With every dang control on the steering column it's easy to turn on your high beams or flash them by accident. When they started putting the high-beam control on the steering column instead of the floor, there were a few people who got their left foot tangled in the wheel trying to use it.

/Urban legend... nope?

Except it probably wasn't a gang initiation, it was probably some asshole that thought "flash your lights at me, huh?"

Just bump them into the intersection. It's why all our trucks have big chrome bumpers.

No worries, I won't signal you.

Texans are miserable because they're not Californians. Sorry you can't all be Californians. California needs some place to send its garbage.

Nope. Use your bootstraps to warn you.

It actually is more that texas cops don't seem to hide, I don't think they're allowed to. They just park on the side of the road and nab people who aren't paying any attention. They do pull over a lot of "suspicious" vehicles though, which are oddly always driven by black and brown people.

I was hauling a kamperoo with a GTI and the rear springs of the GTI were a bit broken down.

Driving through Arizona on two-lane Blacktop every single car flashed me though my low's were on.

Driving through New Mexico no one flashed me literally almost no one.

A lot of people just flash other drivers to enforce rules, not because they're actually Blinded by the Light.

The cops in Austin have been having a temper tantrum since a bunch of them got indicted for shooting teenagers in the face with steel beanbag rounds during the BLM/FLoyd protests...they've basically just stopped doing their jobs, and I think I've maybe seen one or two running radar on MOPAC since then.....

Angle your mirror so it reflects the headlights back to tailgater running with high beams. Then he shoots you. Welcome to America.

I remember a lot of people claiming we would all be safer without cops. Then those same people got upset that cops were 'intentionally not policing', but also, somehow, supportive of the self-declared autonomous zones.
