I came very close to having a major accident on the 408 today
Damn , that was scary , I normally look over my back when changing lanes , but this time I just looked at the mirror , unaware that there was a car in my blind spot.

I jerked so hard, any harder I would have flipped over .

Definitely going to glance a lot over my back from now on . PHEW.

1. Get some blind spot mirrors.
They're a couple bucks at Auto Zone. They've saved my ass countless times over the years.

3. Orlando traffic is awful
I live on the coast and avoid going over there for any reason.
