Out of the Blue

On the day I will hopefully be returning my rented Pacifica I got to test the most vital aspect of any vehicle nominated for the role of the BlueMobile; the ability to make emergency stops. As I have noted before, I am like catnip for stupid drivers, and can produce a couple of witnesses who will confirm that they've never seen anyone have to deal with nearly so many folks going haywire in his path. This morning it was a Mercedes ML500 that decided that since there was time for the car before it to make it off the exit ramp into town (oh the joys of attracting commuters from the surrounding area to our train station), there must be enough time for them to make it too (not even close). Naturally enough this was right in my path, but the Pacifica stopped on a dime (crappy stock tires and all). To her credit (I guess), when the Mercedes driver heard my horn, she made a swerve that would have helped me out if I hadn't been able to stop that very nearly put her into the guard rail... but I really would have rathered she just had looked to see of the coast was clear.
