I found this story on a Social media site under “parents uncensored” and thought I would share it on here because we all have been in situations while on the road when other drivers feel they own the road and make it their mission to run you over.
I decided to share this in hopes that the black woman driving this car maybe will someday see this post.
You tailgated us for a mile for no reason as we were going with the flow of traffic. Plus the other cars around us gave you no room to speed off down the road even if we could have moved. So once you had your chance as the lane split from two to three you made your move. Only to cut off another car so you could swerve back over and brake check us from 65 mph to a near dead stop as we merged into the carpool lane now that it was beginning. I am sure you were proud.
What you do not know is I just had surgery two weeks ago. A c-section to be exact. My incision is still open. The first stop hurt but then when you did it again and again, I can’t even describe the pain I felt.
You see I forgot my pain meds rushing out the door this morning. I wanted to be there in time to maybe have a chance to touch my baby girl today. She is in the NICU at the Summerlin hospital.
I am sure you felt smug continuing to brake check us and drive only 25 mph over the carpool merge lane as we were trying to return home from Summerlin hospital. Seeing we were trapped on the overpass we could not escape you. I am sure this made you feel very powerful. How you followed us even when we changed lanes trying to get away from you after we got off the carpool overpass. I am sure if you had not had to exit at Rancho you would have continued to bully us.
I am proud my partner was strong. He did his best to contain his rage as I screamed out in pain and he tried to dodge your attempts to crash into us. I doubt the cops will catch you. So I am writing this in hopes that maybe one day you will see it. So you can know what a winner you were picking on a pair of new parents that were on their way home trying to choke back tears as we left our baby at the hospital another day.
I am going to do my best to focus on the time I got to have with my baby girl, as I lay here shaking in bed from the sheer agony my body is facing right now.
And just maybe by sharing this story, another person will think twice before acting out against another driver on the road. Because they will realize they have no idea what that person might be going through that day.
****UPDATE**** Thank you to those that have been messaging me with your support. I wanted to give a few more details here. I did call 911 well this was happening. They said they would try to have a patrol car stop the person and if so I could press charges. They would call me back if that took place. I never got a call back.
However because I shared this story on here and all of you have been kind enough to share it, several officers have seen it. I have been contacted by a few privately who are looking into this matter. Thank you all.
