“Dear PoPville,

While I know it isn’t rare to complain about local drivers and their lack of basic knowledge of the task at hand, I’ve seen a bunch of more brazen moves that I was wondering others had noticed.

Today, a pickup truck decided the guy in front of him was going too slow, and went across a double yellow line to zoom around him on Irving (and almost hit me in the process). Read More


In addition to driving poorly

Thanks to David for sending last night: “I guess if you are an armored vehicle you can pretty much park wherever the heck you want. On Massachusetts Avenue eastbound at 10th NW during rush hour today around 5:15 pm in the turning lane. I guess the wedge under the wheel is there so if someone hits it it does not skid forward too far? Oh, that is right it weighs five tons…”


Thanks to Janet for sending at 7pm: “Sunday crash on North Capitol. At Bryant ST. Two people injured. Small explosion and fire. Black SUV T-boned the grey Nissan with two passengers. Onlookers had fire extinguishers to put out the burning car. They also pulled the people out of the car before emergency personnel arrived.

According to a neighbor the perpetrator ran off and was shedding his clothes and shoes but disappeared running down Bryant St towards First Street NW.”

Another reader shares: “I’m on Bryant and heard from a neighbor that another very heroic neighbor of ours used his garden hose to put out the fire and preformed CPR on one of the passengers before the fire/ambulance got here.”

Earlier around 12:45pm: “I have no idea how this happened, honestly I tune out all noise these days and didn’t notice until after cops were already on the scene. Anyone else know what led up to this?”

One reader reported: “It was crazy! He accelerated and didn’t even swerve. Almost like he mixed up the gas and the brake or something. No clue what could have caused it though cause nothing was in the road on anything”
