    My Indian neighbors,

    Glad you come to America and found prosperity; however, this is not Mumbai and there are rules and regulations to driving in this country. PLEASE STOP CUTTING IN AT THE LAST SECOND. NOT ONLY DOES THIS CAUSE DELAYS IN THE LANE BUT MANY REAR-END ACCIDENTS!!!! There is something called a u-turn and waiting your turn in line. If you are late to work, LEAVE EARLIER!!!!

    I really don't care if this post is rejected and taken down, but I know I am not the only who feels this. AND TO OTHER DRIVERS OUT THERE, STOP LETTING A-HOLES IN THE LANE!!!!

    Not sure about your commute, but going from Loudoun County Parkway onto Waxpool Road, how many times do you encounter this issue??!!! 90% of the time, it's is of the Indian persuasion. I get into it with one of these folks ever day on my way to and from work. Meanwhile, no Loudoun County PD around to stop it. Today, some a-hole just moved his car into the car in front of me without a signal causing the car in front of me to slam on her brakes causing me to slam on mine almost rear-ending the car. Harsh, yes, but very true!

    Unfortunately your cultural/racial persuasion does not exclude you from being a jerk driver. I have seen equal a-holes do this in the $80k Mercedes thinking that they own the place and do not have time to deal with these "other" stupid people. At the turn onto Waxpool just past Verizon, I make it into a sport to see how many times I can push the car turning right from the second lane to get ahead. Several times I have forced them onto the concrete divider.... lots of fun as they have the nerve to honk at me for turning wide from the proper lane in my SUV.

    Sorry, I needed the room and did not expect you to turn ILLEGALLY....

    But you will get no sympathy from me trying to characterize this as an ethnic or race-related issue. Bad a-hole drivers are everywhere.

    Not racist, just a generalization. Play the numbers and you will see that in "general" most of the a-holes cutting in at the last minute tend to be of the indian persuasion. From the Atlantic; http://www.theatlantic.com/business...on-and-the-silicon-valley-of-the-east/239538/

    "Indians are flocking to Loudoun and Fairfax counties and have become the largest and fastest-growing group of Asians in the area. Indians are the latest wave of Asians transforming the region, having leapfrogged over Koreans a decade ago. For the first time, they make up the biggest group of Asians in Virginia, largely because they have moved to the Washington suburbs. With their high levels of education and income, Indians are pushing up those averages for the entire region.

    Many have been drawn to Loudoun County, near the high-tech corridor around Dulles International Airport. As recently as 1990, Loudoun had fewer than 400 Indian residents. The number multiplied to about 2,300 in 2000. By the latest census, their ranks had soared to almost 20,000."

    You're supposed to turn into the lane closest to you so what you did is reckless despite the other driver's illegal turn. This pretty much makes you equal to a-holes who drive the $80k Mercedes. :fight2:

    With the volume of cars on our roads, there is no excuse to pull stunts.

    I would have no trouble explaining that to the sheriff... I think I will keep doing it. It is a sharp turn with an SUV if traveling at speed... sorry that you turned into my vehicle Mr. a-hole.

    No problem with that argument.... I will choose to keep doing it and waiting my turn like most everyone else.

    Just to clarify, if you are Indian but born in this country, does this rant still apply? I'm having a real problem identify the new Indians from Mumbai from those that are American just like you.

    How is the driving of people of the Pakistani persuasion? Iranian? How about those from Bangladesh or Myanmar? No complaints about Asian drivers? How about Mexicans? Women? I know the elderly! Screw old people!! Old people are a-holes!!!!

    "How is the driving of people of the Pakistani persuasion? Iranian? How about those from Bangladesh or Myanmar?"

    How many Bangladesh and Myanmar folks you think are in Ashburn. My guess, not many. The ones who recently migrated here would be a good start; the ones traveling to Reston, Herndon and Chantilly areas that range from 30 years old on up. That should help you PDILLM.

    jsteye - you are not generalizing, you are being racist by singling out Indians at the beginning of your post, and your sarcasm speaks volumes about your personal arrogance and obvious lack of respect and decency towards Indian Americans. Trying to justify it by saying you are generalizing reinforces ignorant racism in my interpretation. It's disgusting and a sad reflection of the type of racism that unfortunately will always exist in America. But kudos to you for wearing it so proudly.

    Since originally seeing your post at the beginning of the week, I have been watching both in the morning at Loco and Waxpool as well as the evening on Loco where it goes from 3 lanes to 2 on the top side of the greenway. I have counted 6 a$$holes this week.

    - 1 Indian driver
    - 1 black driver
    - 4 white drivers

    I wonder why I didn't notice the same percentages you do. I would say your observations are clouded by your racism.

    Jsteye....not attacking you here but I would fathom that ALL immigrants here from second/third world countries probably have poor driving habits and are not accustomed to our driving culture/customs/rules. If you look at many third world countries, you'll find that many of their driving laws are drastically different than ours ...plus many don't follow many laws in their own countries...its like free for all like you see in many youtube videos!

    Have fun ranting anyway.....Because this is too funny reading the comments all of you have posted....

    Pretty much my point Capricorn. I'm sure this is a "hold over" from where ever people are from but it doesn't make it right. Not a racist thing as some have suggested, but now that folks are in this country, they should learn and obey the freaking laws!!! Meanwhile, I never see any Loudoun County PD anywhere trying to curb this behavior. Ah screw it; drive like it's Mumbai or where ever. See how many road rage fights happen out there.

    I have to agree about the police....They hardly ever enforce the traffic laws out here unlike Fairfax County police do. I often wonder what the number of police officers are in Loudoun and where they usualy hide? They don't seem to be aggressive at all in enforcing the traffic laws out in Ashburn/Broadlands area at all...I haven't seen them in MONTHS out here. Seems they don't think we have traffic issues here,....or maybe they may be driving around the hillbilly area in west Loudoun county near WV trying to keep the MOONSHINERS from bringing their bootlegging liquor in! :pofl:

    Jsteye,
    Your "indian neighbor" here. I certainly hope you are not one of my neighbors, because yeah, you are not racist at all !!!!!!!!

    Definition of racism : "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." !!!!!!!!!

    Kudos to everyone on this thread for standing up to "non racist" Jsteye. Thank you. Gives me hope and reinforces the belief that this is the greatest country in the world.

    Jsteye, you can crawl back under the rock you came from. Good bye

    007; just drive like normal. Stop cutting in at the last minute or riding my a**. By the way, why did you make it over here if India is so great?Did you like the way people drove over there. I've watched enough Discovery Channel to reinforce my "racism".

    Are you serious?????? Discovery channel, really???? Why did I come here???? Seriously !!!!!!
    Your issues are way beyond Indian drivers cutting you off, get help now Jsteye

    I am done with you, not interested in engaging with you anymore. It's scary that there are people like you around. Your rant is racist, and vile and offensive not just to me but to people of all nationalities who have made Broadlands their home.

    Stop your ranting......get help
    Good bye
