So my car is still my baby with only 56,500 (roughly) miles and since I bought the extended warranty, and my mileage is so low, the dealer is going to fix the A/C (again) as an ongoing problem at no cost. However, in order to pass inspection, I took it to Midas and they replaced all 4 brake pads and did a synthetic oil change, and rotated my tires. Immediately I ordered Nakamoto Zinc infused cross drilled and slotted rear and cross drilled , slotted, and vented front rotors as the originals are warped front and terribly rear. Since I already have the front rotors and I am thrilled with the way they look, I can't wait to get them all installed. They are made by the OEM manufacturer Nakamoto.

    "Officer Steve", you have been found guilty of whatever this dude has said you did. Your sentence is........
    10 push-ups and a fresh new headlight for your aging Impala Cruiser.

    He had been recklessly speeding back and forth on the beltway trying to make folks speed...but always ended up on my tail. Have you considered that he found it fun? I honestly don't know what was in his mind other than being ALL over the road. In the dark. In the rain, and with roads drenched. Did you remember poking fun at my brake upgrade as overkill???? My ABS never even came on.
    Did you get a plate number? I wish.

    Perhaps you can follow up your letter with a visit to the local barracks and speak to a supervisor. The letter (or email) is likely to get round filed.
    They will pull together and the supervisor is not going to say:
    Ohhh; that was Officer Steve. Here he is. We have cuffed him with zip restraints so you can bring him........here for disciplinary action. Thank you SO MUCH for your assistance.

    This mornings story

    You guys know I like to post comments with stories, and this morning I had a doozy.

    I was on my was back from DC pain clinic on 395 South. It was exactly 7AM. It was dark,wet roads, and full of traffic. I noticed a car with one headlight following me. He would hang back a little...but had a headlight out so tracking him was easy.
    Anyway, to shorten the story he ended up beside me, but behind. No one was behind me, so I SLAMMED on my brakes. He did too. I stopped. He went by. It was VA State Police car in an Impala made only for State Police.

    Why was I being followed? Why didn't he just pull me over if he had a question. Stopping on 395 is illegal but he went on by...paused for a minute...then I heard his engine as he took off.

    I found a place to send comments to the senior State Police contact. What he did was dangerous to other traffic, dangerous to me, and the officer could have hurt or even killed others.It was dark, roads were soaked, and; I think the one headlight ploy is to make folks speed. Thank god I have me heads up and only went 59 max.

    Maybe he saw my previous record and he WAS pushing me to accelerate, but I heard NO in the back of my neck. So, switched lanes to let him by....but he got behind me instead. I thought he was just an a$%hole....I was right. A State Police a%$hole.

    Civic seems designed for short folks.
    More like the over-caffeinated teen driver and his or her cronies. I love the Touring model. Dual exhaust tucked up under the fairing is a classy departure from giant exhaust pipes on 130 hp (avg) Civics of yore with a hole cut in the fairing, then enlarged for giant exhaust tip and low restriction muffler that made the engine sound like a swarm of bees/wasps/angry horseflies.
    So I got to ask, what makes a horsefly angry? What makes them happy?
    I did grow up next to a Horse farm, and worked tere to buy my Diamond Back 20" BMX bike. Horse flies are like F-22 Raptors, as swatting/shooting and missing is not recommended, just cars and jets. Also, NO GIANT WINGS ON CIVICS.
    Horse feathers; horse flies always seem angry B)
    Bingo! They bite every mammal with eager anger, but they are normally found around horses...and due to their size in addition, the Horsefly name stuck.

    Bingo! They bite every mammal with equal anger, but they are normally found around horses (and large Swimming Pools near Horse Farms too. I can personally attest to that). With their size considered as well, the Horsefly name stuck.
    Hey the next tiny Honda with a 1.2 liter turbo should be called the HHF, or Honda Horsefly due mainly to the high revving and pitched engine, etc. Built on Fit platform w/no backseat, stick only in Europe, CVT available in NorthAmerica. LOL
