Dodging Dodges Story #2

Dodge Dakota


On my way back to Woodstock this afternoon after following the jerk in the Dodge 4x4 truck south on Route 47, I was heading north on Dean Street past the new schools between Lucas Road and U.S. 14. The speed limit there (at Hercules Road) is 40MPH and, you guessed it, I was right on 40. All to the ire of a guy in a black Dodge pick-up truck (no, not the same one as in Story #1).

This was not my day to be in the way of nuts driving Dodge pick-ups; that's for sure. Just as we arrived at the 50MPH and I began to speed up, the driver of the Dodge Dakota pick-up (Illinois license 64 166F) decided that it was time to get past me, and pass me he did! (Click on the photo to enlarge it and read the license plate number for yourself.)

One of my pet peeves is drivers who simply "must" pass. And where did I catch up with him, even after slowing down to 45MPH and then to 35MPH approaching U.S. 14? Right at the red light at Dean St. and U.S. 14. A lot of time he saved; right?

I recall the words of an insurance client in Denver who told me how other drivers view red cars. He told me that a red car was like a red flag to a bull. Red makes other drivers angry. Think there is anything to that?
