I pull up past this truck that's stopped in the left lane, and as I'm a few yards away, the passenger opens his door in my face. I quickly check there's no cars in the next lane, it's half empty, and I swing half out of the lane (and more and I'd risk hitting the next car who was weaving slightly.)
As I'm about to pass the dump drunk, a mere foot or two away from his door, the garbage collected hopped out. If I hadn't been able to swerve I would have hit him.
I was shivering the whole ride home. I hope I'm not due an accident. I pray.
Side note: Later, I saw a car zoom speed through traffic. Then another. Then a Police prisioner bus (possibly unconnceted) then some undercovers flashing their lights, (only in the front), and soon a few more cars, no lights flashing, followed the same pattern.
None looked like typical undercover cars - they were all late model, very shiny and well cared for, and didn't have siren lights and antennas everywhere.
What could it have beem?
