As for I-94 and hitchhikers, even if someone wanted to pick you up, it probably is too dangerous for them to pull off and try to do so. I have been doing 80 mph in the RIGHT-Hand lane and still had idiots behind me aggressively tail-gating to try to force me to speed up. Take the average NASCAR super speedway race and just stretch it out to an in-line race and you have I-94 between Chicago and Detroit, particularly the segment between Kalamazoo and Detroit.[/quote]

Yes, we got them here too. I sometimes think it would be fun to force every car to carry some vicious agricultural equipment on the back at about head height; one quick brake test and we have a guaranteed conviction for dangerous driving and NO possibility of reoffending. Fundamentalist? Evil? Moi?

Yip,
the cars are needed.

I have shelved the Volvo estate as it was guzzling the gas and trying to source a radiator hose for a 13 year old citroen.

I try and pick up hitchikers , especially if they are kids as I hitched a lot when I was a teenager.

I like to hear where they are from and how long they have been out on the road.

adios,
Lovat
