dill say this...im a bicycle and scooter driver so i know how devastating a car hitting me would be. ive had a few "ruffians" enter my life and i know its not easy to let something like that go. to each his own...if u choose to run the guy down then thats your choise. ive chased a guy down on foot that cut my battery out of my car...i was on foot however. unfortunate situation. for both of us. i only hope nne of us on ecomodder ever have to go through your situatin. dddddd

As a MN lifer, I am qualified to say that yes, MN drivers SUK.

All Chris said was true. Cell phone yappin, tailgatin, speedin, bobbin 'n' weavin, mufflerless pickup with blinding lights drivin MORONS. Stereotypes come about for a reason... and there are enough MN drivers to make this blanket assessment stick.

I can attest to this as well, being in MN and having to put up with retarded drivers.

And I honestly thought Cali was bad, Cali has NOTHING on the majority of Minnesota drivers..

people out in CA are more prone to being lawsuit happy, so people keep their distance..
I am not looking forward to winter because people get right on your butt when comming to a stop..

my front and rear bumpers are tweeked, so I'm just going to leave em that way till mid spring..
I'll let them pay for the rear bumper..
