Betty Dewitt: Dear idiot dimwit tailgater ...

April 26, 2013 

This is an open letter to the congenial idiot who shone his spotlight directly in my rearview mirror as he tailgated my vehicle at 9:10 p.m. Wednesday night on West North Bear Creek as I was eastbound in the block between M Street and G Street. He was obviously annoyed, because I was going 25 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The reason for this is because as I made my right hand turn off R Street to go eastbound on West Bear Creek, my steering wheel was acting up. I kept it under control at 25 mph. So since I was almost home, I chose to keep that speed to avoid further problems.

Well, this dimwit took umbrage at my speed, never considering the possibility that there might be a good reason for it.

His spotlight was to the right of the passenger's side headlight, so since that is an unusual place for a spot, I'll keep an eye out for it. Maybe P.D. might, also.

That case of arrested development needs to learn some manners.
