So anyway good good to be back although I you can tell you those of you I'm fly do in the summertime when you hit the wall and you know which airport cheering as soon as you walk on the plane in the run when you feel let humidity comeback in. And boy what a pleasant break it is to split up some good way to place's nice cool at some temperatures in the low forties and under the glacier trip and when you get close those -- -- the wind blown off the escalation and you gotta be bundled up fleece on and gloves and jackets and a a young couple who were honeymoon -- sitting at the table with new immigration tour boat. And -- -- from Florida and luckily it was the first time they were there images -- not prepared they did not get the mammal on what where. Luckily I had a pair of gloves in the -- cap that I can loan to the two of them young lady and I'm kind of helped him get through it but anyway I'm glad to be back good to be back in the back in Louisiana and moved on V continuing to talk more about that -- some pictures of highlights of the cajun invasion.

I came across a story about a Detroit judge -- name's James talent. And he sentenced a fellow by the name and I don't know let -- Cummings whose nineteen years old. And in the sentencing his comments to Cummings one he told -- that he he needed a dead someone to discipline him. And this is a quote someone to beat the hell out of you when you made a mistake as opposed to allowing you. Or encouraging news to do it to somebody else was he on target was the judge outline. Was physical punishment part of your childhood. And have you yourself ever use physical force to discipline. Children. Is fear Obama of a thrashing a good motivated. Will open phone lines up eleventh of that at 10 o'clock and -- this hour right here we're going to be talking about some the net. Also kind of is annoying. Drivers doing things on the rose distracted drivers territorial drivers bright light abusers. Tail gators. What you're on the road pet -- -- polled some of the the other hosts here at WW go long on and it accounts -- -- -- -- I got a list -- would bugs them the most and I'll tell you what mine is volatile some of them out there for you. To comic choose from. And of course and a lot of you got journal but what does still. Thing that really gets to you know that of the drivers would. And if you wanna participate in today's program those phone lines on 2601870203. It's 866. 889087. Text as you can get a sedate 7870. Please remember -- text responsibly. -- along Louisiana no texting while driving if you going to be driving. Have a designated text -- -- if you -- text wall unit vehicle have a designated drivers pretty simple Mosul the ground rules so let the texting and calling began. Some of these out -- some of the ideas on gonna start off with -- mine this is my personal pet peeve. I drive a lot on interstate well. Between Slidell and Baton -- And for some reason it seems like this stretch maybe because it's only two lanes and it's already overcrowded should be three land some of its -- and expand its feelings that you get close and Baton -- -- -- still -- a lot of it. But yeah you follow along OK and you pass him in the left -- we've got along Louisiana but you don't belong in the left wing militia passing. Now as I remember him back in the day when I took my first driving. Test to get my license state they had a rule of thumb half closely you should follow behind. In it was something like one car -- for every ten miles speed. So if you go on seventy. Much more likely 751912. You should be seven carlin's behind the next call was not -- must change either the technology has gotten better. Cause a gotten better people's reaction time is better I don't know but now I see him gone 7075. With -- less than a Carlin. On it is in on my. So basically I try to keep at least two to three car lands behind probably too. And how they -- on seven he may be 75 and I'm in the left lane and I'm passing cars in the right lane traffic and -- might be 6568. So what. Fasten them but not zoom in past -- would gradually passing. But we are passing so was staying -- in the law. Well as always going to be some clown that runs up on the right hand side. And wants to jump in front of me and squeezed into that two car lands to get ahead of me. And pass me on the right. Is the one that really gets me. I mean I am in the process of passing got a safe distance between the card from me and this jerk is gonna come run -- cut in front of me winning on their -- just get from me it's an angle on anywhere after that. Then passing these these cars up ahead in the England 7075. And is barely a -- -- between. And anything can happen mechanical. Out to -- missed -- into another issue about. People were texting and distracted with other things pulling on makeup eating breakfast it. And you can have a serious accident I -- that's mine and -- that's mine up and here's some other ones that I just wanna throw matchup you can maybe pick yours and you were -- got some callers on the one issue others -- -- suggest this is the data do it so stay on there would get to you the second. Distracted drop as I mentioned. They could be distracted the phones that I've ads food make up being your name and I've seen and on the roads people just not paying attention. Preoccupied with trying to do other things that we have the territorial drop. You know of these and then -- -- emerge even when there's nowhere else for you to go -- -- generally you know it's kind of -- and I'm in the one behind these -- -- you know alternating. Now as the ones that just don't wanna human -- they don't want to -- not give him -- time. Now of course we have the intersection block traffic bumper to bumper. They come to an intersection with a lie and I gonna wait that you know sanctions the cars can get through in the light changes they're gonna sit there and market. They only got the people that just think bright lights of the greatest thing Italian Alaska. I had 83 hour drive along the keen on peninsula. From -- dot to Anchorage the morning -- returned. And I tell you they got some creative bright lights they use in Alaska roses -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Anyway bright light users who refused to -- You know -- if you can understand -- got him on an animal on awhile and you go in and you put the lights on the same day -- blinded me and they just won't -- About the tailgate -- -- is two it's in knowing in general but it's very unsafe and aggravated if you go on the speed limit or even high. About drivers who speed up when -- crime the past some day there and right playing you come up behind them. You move over the the last plane and all the sudden they wanna start going fast as they don't want to pass and from. What about drivers who can't seem to maintain a consistent speed that probably gets back to distracted. I would think. As if -- done that you're you can generally tell -- -- signal and I get up to this -- look over I guarantee you -- got a phone in his face. About this one not pulling over for an emergency vehicle. -- -- life is so important can't take three seconds all last DePaul over to maybe save another person's life. Not gonna give an inch to the emergency vehicles. Then you got the drivers who turned left from the right on that's -- minute turn right from the left lane on a four lane road. -- all across several lanes of traffic to make this turn. Then you got the those who like to drive five to ten under the speed limit and they looked -- looked mostly for some than. While slowing down all the traffic behind him. Then when there's two planes but the right lanes -- right turn lane. And you got someone use in that -- that pass up everybody and it's taken their time in their turn in the long line of cars. Trying to bully the left -- at the last minute to get fun. And when people don't have the option open opportunity to make a turn on right they don't. Does anybody know -- they get the memo you can turn right after a stop -- summoned after a year. Those are a few only come back and initiate you would Angela hill T Bob -- back debt from buy used these suited for magic scoot. Scott Cologne bizarre web master Mark -- of aboard operators news reported -- hands though. Steve gallon Jammer to be 97 they've all got their deputies what's yours checking on a pretty opinion poll question which it reflects that we have right now and not surprisingly distracted drivers 40% of you think that is the most annoying thing. 10% say territorial drivers 20% bright light abusers another twenty -- gainers in another 10% off fall under the category other. And I have got probably a 150 text about the most annoying thing one problem we'll try to get to make those weekend and I of the one of them before go to our caller. This 1 says Don I am a police officer I seen a lady on west esplanade eating a plate of red beans were. While driving the issue of corn -- a regular role. Yeah what's the strangest thing the other -- of people do it has -- last saw contestant Kimberly sought some but anyway let's go to Rick Ingraham and I he's got one for -- Rick thanks for calling. I do my friend what annoys you the most. Well out there are skeptical but rather it -- but when you come they. Gated home. And you. See one cor common real slow and the practical common -- -- -- -- well you let the court coal fired because. It -- -- you don't have operated like why couldn't get out quick if I can pull out -- -- if you know if he's. Awaited return. Yeah. Yeah show -- so you just ask and do something simple you got Blake is on call use right. Yeah very simple up and down and other thing that. Talk about these tailgate people -- these these these these trucks are rotting in a way it was on its highways -- in this state highways it's come right side and and if you do an Olympic they'll hit -- on and you know it's it's it's it's ridiculous. Well I think a lot of these things were talking about need to be enforce that we have laws that prevent tailgating we have laws that prevent. Using a cell phone on sale device law you'd Robin but yet very few people who ticketed I can't remember anybody ever heard of got ticketed for. Driving and texting or not driving in in in and cruising the Internet and it goes on -- Osce -- my campus police. Our creative funny thing other things that might drop and put and I dropped him. You wonder how we still lives it is unreal -- -- It is thank you for you call Rick we appreciated -- you wanna get our -- just today's debated do it now Rick agrees with -- Tuesday is on magic one on 91 of host he says drivers not using their signal don't edge over and expect me to know you wanna come over and and get pissed that I don't give you run. -- come to a stop while almost running to you so you can turn let me know you are turning. He's got this in all caps use your signal people. Angela -- got will be different today at when asked -- -- most -- -- driver and she says pick up trucks that think they own the road king of the road. What is your ST 60187. ER 8668890878. And I hope all these people that it texting on driving after -- vehicle that they are indeed having a designated text before them. I'm going go most annoying thing to me this is a text while driving is people go slow leak in the left -- Another one says driving wrong way in a parking lot a lot to kind of free for all that'll come under regular. Traffic -- Is another when that says not texting and driving gets on my nerves Don police need to enforce the law on the subject yeah we got the law on the books and Nazis and up the saint. There's another one tailgating driving slow in the left lane general impatient. Another one this one mass at the -- with a high beams on people that rob about high beams in the city. Is another text texting and driving is me and my dad's pet peeve. The designated text that's what we say to use and remember when you gimme reading these text. If you punched the down 87 -- 1053 union enemy in mid sentence -- remember that may or may not be my real opinion. May just be that animate text of them reading to you. I think as an adult in the second most of -- what was affairs anyway the second most annoying thing to me while driving is people who won't turn left on red. After stopping when legally allowed turn left on red. Or other places though like Utah and left I don't know about rise against -- could be few instances. I have another when Don people that can't wait behind you. Yeah I know which to me and and here's another one just says Texas drivers most of the only thing about -- extra. -- -- fast as most of them in a deal now on this beat. And here's another one in the intersection. Blocker who won't look at Q at all well. On whistler into the great beyond that -- block in this in a section in the -- Logan anybody can in my community. Here's another one. What about -- twelve traffic slows down approaching the bridge gone over the river. I guess they mean that you found -- -- there. And how yeah 19 in how which 11 that would be to -- to Rivet and then when you get over the bridge there's nothing going on I guess that's gonna look at the river. At who's going east or west. I -- that very often you're exactly right for some reason that river has that you know and Evelyn is the highrise. People I guess because moon beginning -- angle that's steep angle. They have to -- the an accelerated to keep him to maintain this speed and they don't do proceed generally immune to slowdown as a question for you what would you do with a thousand dollars -- a lot of things on the mind WWL wants to help you find out like Phyllis fans learn dug -- a listener from right here in Metairie.

End to drive growth. Said in on August who's -- is look man this -- -- not only says Donald bill cause I just -- -- -- -- trying to be Smart but I asked in a war don't. But I think. The alignment on some of these vehicles you know when you get on another type of vehicle that's a lot more it seems like it's bright eyes because it's at that specific angle. And now -- -- you can avoid to do that misses some kind of an adjustment you can make like you say you know used to be able just tickle Phillips screwdriver and angle where they should be you know on. Or whether there out of line I was just a way that they happened a decision but then people of drama around they think the bright lights are wrong but then.

Enjoy the experience of course don't arms much -- so it is it is clear -- How can also be very stressful and you know I can't help but think that just the fast pace of the world of social media in no hurry this and attacks that run here all us.
