The other day, after finishing my GB3 workout, I was preparing to leave the crowded parking lot of a Clovis shopping center. I sat frozen with fear as a huge, jacked-up pickup truck, moving at a high rate of speed, appeared to be a moment away from a head-on collision with a car filled with young girls.
The girls were panicking, as the track veered directly into the wrong side of the road. The truck was jacked-up high enough to drive right over the car. What was most disturbing, however, was the way the truck’s driver seemed to be aiming his vehicle at the car, in an apparent attempt at intimidation. I felt relieved when the truck moved back into its lane at the last moment.
But then I became angry. I asked myself why jacked-up trucks even allowed on the road? They are obviously designed for off-road conditions. Perhaps they are already prohibited. I don’t know. But as a father and proud Clovis resident, I feel responsible for all of its children. Something must be done to protect the innocent from these monster trucks and drivers who use them as a weapon.
