    The "I Saw it While Driving Thread" UB5 Version

    On the MBDS (message board down south) we had the same thread where you post the funny, stupid, shameful, and crazy pictures you see while you are driving.

    And... Go!

    A while back I was driving home from work on I-215 east of the airport towards Davis county. Traffic was light and I was going about 75 MPH (pay no attention, Diehard Ute).

    I noticed 3 strange things all at once. I noticed something moving rapidly up and down in my peripheral vision to my left, i heard a loud grinding sound, and I saw a car on the other side of the freeway with a large amount of sparks coming from it.

    I finally realized that the object moving up and down rapidly was the sparky car's front drivers side wheel and tire, and it was coming right at me. It bounced over my car and missed me by about 5 feet. It took me a few minutes to realize how dangerous the situation could have been.

    About 25 years ago, I was hurrying through the Mission Bay area on I-5 toward downtown SD. It was a warm Summer day around 2 pm. Three vehicles were travelling side by side a little below the speed limit, and I was frustrated for quite some time not being able to get around them. On the left was a SUV, in the center a Chrysler convertible, on the right a semi truck.

    By the time I was able to move around the vehicles, I looked over to see what kind of idiots were blocking so much traffic behind them. A look at the convertible revealed it... A 30ish brunette wearing nothing but sunglasses. She wasn't exactly Megan Fox, but she certainly wasn't Rosanne Barr either. True story.

    No. No. No.

    You must post a pic of what you saw.

    I was describing the picture I have in my head, but I didn't use the requisite 1000 words.

    You're encouraging us to take picures while we drive? Sounds a little reckless

    I have no photo, but while at the U, when the golf course was still there I was driving down the road that went through the middle of it towards the Union Bldg. I had an old beater Honda Civic (still my favorite car I've owned of all time) and suddenly a golf ball ricochets off my hood. I hit the brakes and look around the golf course to see who shanked their drive so badly, only to see two guys in their late 70s - 80s running away. I hopped out of my car and yelled at them, "You better run punks!"

    Still cracks me up to this day thinking of those old farts running with their golf bags.

    As an example:

    On my last trip to Utah, I was excited to learn that they water their sidewalks to help them grow.

    I used to work for Wacker Construction Equipment. I had a company truck with that exact logo plastered all over it. This picture was most likely taken outside a construction equipment rental company.

    Hey, your moniker is misspelled. You can't capitalize in the middle of words that way.

    Speling is kind of a subjective thing anyway.

    $5.09 / gallon near La Brea, CA.
    The Ford in this photo just pulled out of this station, presumably after pumping some gas.

    Wow. Was that taken today? Premium is about $4.35 here in my neck of the woods.

    Taken yesterday (June 1, 2013). The price is abnormally high for the neighborhood by about a dollar. I happened to have the camera in the front seat and was stopped at the light, so I snapped the photo. (was on my way to see the Helms Bakery Building on Venice Blvd - an important site in Olympic history).
