Dear moron in the black Altima on rt3 north @ exit 27 @4 this afternoon
In the event you didn't notice I was directly beside you when you changed lanes. I wasn't looking for a detour through the breakdown lane and into the grass as I had to jerk the car real hard not to have your POS imprinted into my passenger side at 75mph.
As far as what happened down the road .. Well you got what you deserved. Kindly stop driving like an a$$hole and look before you whip lanes

Sincerely,
Old enough to know better

Dear Subaru,

I love your cars, I really do, but you make the worst ABS I've ever seen! When the driver in front of me stops short in the rain (yes, I had a safe following distance), it would be quite convenient that my brakes actually stop the car. Instead, the system you've cooked up practically disables the brakes to keep them from locking up. Honestly, I would much rather have the brakes lock up and bite into the road than do nothing at all! With that said, does anyone know how difficult it would be to wire in a switch to disable/enable the ABS fuse?

Dear riced out, sticker bombed, silly slammed Civic begging to race at every stoplight,

The blue smoke pouring out of your tailpipe is not a sign of you winning. It's a sign of your engine about to pop!

About killed myself in the snow because of that ha.
Came up to a stoplight, hit the brakes and the abs starts hammering. Pretty much no brakes at all. I was doing 35 when I tried braking and ended up rolling the red light doing 25

When people complain about ABS they should probably be complaining about their tires.

A group from here went to the TON winter school several years. Not many complaints and ABS is working all day.

I'm gonna have to agree. Mine would start to lock and have the ABS kick in all the time in the snow, now that I actually have good snows, I didn't have the ABS kick in once last winter. And I was purposely braking too hard to try and feel the limits.

However, mine likes to kick in sometimes if I am on the brake and the road gets bumpy. Gets kinds sketchy when you are approaching an off ramp and the roads all bumps and pot holes as you are slowing down.

You say that like there isn't a road in Mass without pot holes... oh right, there isn't a road in Mass without pot holes!

True. But sometimes their location is a lot more inconvenient then others.

Dear Boxster Driver,

Sorry about the unfortunate turn of events which took place last weekend when you pulled beside me on 101 east after you tailgated me for 3 miles refusing to pass when i pulled over into the right lane. Your 25 year old gold digging girl friend wasn't very impressed with your glorified miata's performance. How could i tell? The fact she winked at me once i returned to the 70 mph traffic flow... Sorry to bring out the realness in your girl bahaha

Lol should have gone more in depth i guess... 101 varies in flow of traffic (some go 85 others 65) No racing just a gold digger showing her true colors... I thought it was funny

Refusing to pass someone, particularly when they move over so that it can be done, is something a **** driver does.

Dear dumb blonde in the nissan rouge at the gas station,
The curb you so nicely indicated to me is actually meant to separate exiting traffic turning right from exiting traffic turning left. Since I was turning left I was in the left opening which is double wide to allow entering traffic to make the right into the parking lot. So stopping and holding up the traffic to lecture me was just priceless especially when the guy in the lexus urged you on calling you a dumb c*nt. While I dont condone the use of that wording in such a situation it sure did give me a laugh.
Please had the keys you the male passenger you had with you after you fill up

Sincerely, just trying to pick up some beers before my lady friend gets to my house

You could go whole hog and fill out your profile.

Say what you will, she was in his car. Boxster performance is terrific and an S can dust most WRX in a straight line as well. Sounds like a ricer flyby to me.

Actually, I have a fairly new set of Bridgestone Duelers on the car. I think the ABS lockup was a mixture of having to brake hard, rain, and the slight bump where the asphalt became a concrete overpass. Still, I find it to be way too sensitive.


Dear rider on the sports bike,

You passed me over the double yellow by the rifle range on Canistear Road. Yeah, never had one of your kind do that before. The worst part is that you passed about 7 cars at once! Hope you enjoyed my Hellas; go crash into the woods.

Sincerely,
LIP89

Dear squid,
Just because my street is 1/4 mile long, doesn't mean you can treat it like a drag strip and tear ass down it.Go be a douchebag where other people won't get hurt.

Yeah, that makes sense. Because WRX drivers never drive like asshats.

had nothing to do with abs and everything to do with to fast for conditions.

all wheel drive helps you get & keep moving, it does little to help you stop in snowy conditions
