so you profess no respect for others who cross the line, but it's ok for you?

If I cross the double yellow for any reason other than the two listed "I" AM messing up. If it causes a crash, it is on ME, no one else, and I could be called the idiot for riding over my head!

LOL, you edited out 90% of the post and 70% of the sentence to take 14 words and make them completely out of context.

I never said I didn't respect them....I said they don't respect a yellow line.

Anyone can delete half a post, quote it and completely change it's meaning.

How about I delete most of your post, leave the words 'Pot' and 'for you?' in quotes and accuse you of trying to deal drugs?

Whatever.

now I try to think that maybe there IS a reason for them other than training wheels

not always successful though
