What IDIOT engineer built this road?

ok, so im driving home from work, 50 MPH its raining like hell. theres a car up infront of me either stopped or going very slow, so i start slowing down (cant change lanes people beside me) if you havent figured out how this story will end, let me give you soem background ont the road

the road is built across a SWAMP with NO DRAINAGE and very small dtiches

if u havent figured it out yet, your an idiot

ok so im sllowing down, bout 20-30 mph now, then WHAM i dont know WTF just happened... hit my breaks, nothing, my cars all over the place, i just hit a 3-4 foot lake of water.. i eneded up stopping about 10ish feet from this guys bumper... hes BEHIND HIS CAR waving his hands... "oh no someone is going to hit the back of my car I KNOW i will stand behind my car and wave my hands so they stop, i want put my emergency blinkers on, and hopefully i will be CRUSHED between my car and the car that hits me"

anyway, now that i havent hit this idiot, i immediatly swithc my emergency blinkers on, rverse out of the lake (thank god i didnt stall or have a CAI) and sit there while this idiot and his friend push his car out....

theres 2 idiots in this story, one the engineer who built the road, and the idiot behind his car with a death wish, they both deserve to die

Re: What IDIOT engineer built this road?

yes everyday back and forth to work (at a new airport) the road itself is very new, ive driven on it in the rain before too, wasnt that bad today, not really sure what happened today....

dont have any pics wish i had a camers (THATS WHY I BOUGHT A NFREGIN CAMERA PHONE) i coulda taken one wiht my phone but it would be the size of a stamp <_< ....

oh yea and i left out the part where i drove up onto the curve to get out of the way of a car that looked like he was going to hit me.. lucky it must have been low cuz my front bumpers ok

I'm sure that the person who designed it was overruled by some pencil pushing, self-important middle management type. "We can save one thousand dollars!"
