    Road Rage

    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...

    And You Are?
