Every now and then you see something that just has to be photographed because nobody will believe it otherwise. This doesn't really rise to that level, but it still, in my mind, needed to be documented. Needed it badly enough for me to dig the camera out of the bag and load a new memory card all with one hand in order to capture the image (I'd already shot 1200 or so photos that day, maxing out exhausted an 8Gb CF card). After snapping a few one-handers, I went on around the truck wondering how many times his bumper has been photographed in his travels. And marveling at the ingenuity of this method for conquering road rage. After all, who would read this and still be enraged?
Stumble This!

Sorry, but my road rage only responds to medication!

Your multitasking skills are remarkable. I'd be cursing myself for not being able to capture great perspectives like this while underway. I think I need a remote control camera on the dash!

It would be SO ironic if this guy actually drove like a doof.

And might I add, you must have one clean damn windshield to snap that so clearly. No bug guts or ANYTHING? lol
