I love my loud horn. I makes the driver in the car wake up and pay attention and I use it more than I should have to. I honestly think if it doesn't have four wheels it does not exist. Hopefully this is not my next move.

I haven't had that happen yet, knock on wood!

I try to keep a faster pace than traffic, so I'm the one doing the passing. Having the field of play in front of me helps keep me in control of the situation, and I see the obstacles as they come up in front of me.

Theres always some jackass doing 100+ in a cage that flies by occasionally, so you still need to keep an eye on your mirrors as well.

Had a guy cut me off by coming right over into my lane when he was next to me. I jammed the brakes and I sped up next to him. He was mad at me already? WTF? I flicked him off, and put my hands up like GET SOME! That dude was dumb enough to want me to pull over and fight?? U ever seen the ICON Gauntlet gloves? Its like brass knuckles.

Needless to say I just shrugged it off. Just not worth all the trouble I would be in

and I mean for traffic jam, If you're at a stop light and you got 100 cars in front of you, we should have the right to go all the way to the front (like they do at the track and drag racing.. LOL) So other drivers can see us... IMO

I'm sure the lid will be fine, you would just have to worry about getting blood all over it

Be more fun to just punch 'em and laugh when they try to hit me back and realize everything worth hitting is armored...
