I  NEARLY got sideswiped on 294 today, but with the awesome handling of the Fusion, I avoided being hit.  Stupid moron in a Jeep didnt even bother to check his left when approaching an onramp with traffic coming, I was right next to him and had he just glanced left he would have seen me. Thankfully I have great peripheral vision and saw the moron in time to git out of its way. 

 

really nimble, really stable

 

Love the Fusion!

Love the Fusion!

acdii be nimble, accdii be quick,

acdii look out for the Jeeper dick.

 

a look to his right,

a look to his left,

acdii avoids a terrible fright.

 

with a twist of his wrist,

a sly glance behind,

he avoids the collision,

with the Fusion handling sublime.

 

with grace and great poise,

and so little noise,

the situation is controlled without a car fixin',

as nimble and stable as the great donner and blitzen.

 

And to all a good night.

I hope the rest of us aren't expected to write our responses as poems!

Several years ago I had a Jeep do the same basic thing to me on a freeway in heavy traffic. Had no time to think about it, I had to just act to avoid a collision. I suspect it is a combination of bad blind spots on Jeeps combined with an aggressive nature of Jeep drivers. Face it, Jeeps don't appeal to safety conscious drivers.

I have an excuse, was just released from the hospital and the nerve block and painkillers were still working.  :)

I didn't know I was so creative when under anesthesia. 

Now I have to remember to stay away from a computer when like that!

No sympathy please, just routine.
