The blonde in her 20s either inherited a shizzy hand-me-down from her parents or moved here from out of state and bought a used Honda Accord (license plate 4ZEA). Regardless, she has picked up some bad driving habits somewhere and brought it to our streets. I first noticed her riding my ass going south on Laurel Canyon in the Valley. She was chatting away into a cell phone she was holding in her hand, though it wasn’t held against her ear. Here’s a newsflash people: using the speaker phone function on your phone isn’t the same thing as driving hands-free. Furthermore, this girl clearly has serious ADD issues because at every single stop at a red light, she would drift right up to the rear of my car while looking to the left, right, down…basically anywhere but right in front of her. Again, I have to say I really don’t understand this L.A. tendency of drifting. Like seriously people, you can’t wait until you come to a complete stop before you look around at the dying palm trees and antique furniture shops? I last saw her when she cut to her right (without signaling) and sped past me at 50+ mph in a 35 mph zone. Mind you, I wasn’t traveling at 35 either, since I was going with the flow of traffic, but the cars around me certainly weren’t gunning it as fast as she wanted to go. Naturally, she didn’t get anywhere fast and had to brake behind another car before making a right off of Laurel. So we have yet another inattentive, distracted, speeding, tailgating, semi-signaling, cell phone wielding, aspiring young actress on our streets, and we wonder why this town has the reputation that it has (and rightly deserves).
