    There ought to be a law against blacks wearing all black at night and standing in the middle of the road, just passed a little hill. I almost hit a black girl the other night. I saw her white friend on the side of the road but my lights were still facing up the hill and all of a sudden, there she was right in front of me....I almost hit her. I'm still shaking, probably didn't bother her at all, she's probably still laughing at how the "color" drained out of my face.

    If anyone is out near the street at night, they should carry flashlights at the very minimum.

    I'm pretty sure it's against the law for anyone to just stand in the middle of the street.


    fwiw :tongue:

    On edit:

    Glad everyone is OK, sorry for the scary close call. I recently had a near miss (someone failed to yeild the right of way) while I had my 1 year old nephew in the car.

    I don't think she was just standing there, I think they were crossing the street, it's just that I only saw the white girl, who was ahead of the black girl. Still, they might have considered crossing at the crosswalk 50 feet behind me. And they were in high heels too...so obviously she couldn't move very fast to get out of my way. Why didn't she wait until I passed? Doesn't she understand that it's dark out there, she wearing all dark clothing, her skin is all dark and until that last second, my headlights were point up the hill so I couldn't see her at all? You know, if I'd hit her, she'd probably be crying about that racist white driver....and I doubt I would have killed her as it's a neighborhood road and I was going slow, thank the Lord. If I'd been one of those idiots that speed down that road, she'd be dead for sure.

    You didn't see the teeth? Pretty good contrast going on right there.

    buy a new car. with good xenon headlights like on BMW you can see shit from about a mile away ( literally ) at night. with regular bulbs you can see maybe 10 feet in front of you.

    you can get aftermarket xenons installed on your piece of shit but they don't do this cool auto-leveling shit and other fun tricks.

    some BMWs now have night vision infrared systems but i don't have it so can't comment on the usefulness in detecting *******.

    Um, if I could afford a BMW, I wouldn't have been driving my kid home from school that night. And I object to your use of the "n" word. As I told Marcus when he lived here,"I don't care if you are black, that word is not allowed in this house."
