Large Vehicle

Posted in Georgia History by chamblee54 on May 26, 2013








The food and service was terrific. Once PG got an inkpen that worked, the ticket was signed. It was time to go home.

Ashford Dunwoody Road, between Johnson Ferry and Peachtree, is a narrow two lane road. Like most Atlanta roads, there are hills and curves. It has a 35 mph speed limit. Ashford Dunwoody Road is not a good place to drive fast.

PG noticed a large vehicle that was uncomfortably close to the back of his vehicle. There was a turnoff lane for a subdivision, and PG pulled into it. The large vehicle seemed to speed up as it roared by.

Going down the road, the large vehicle kept getting further and further away. PG was doing 40, which was over the speed limit. Soon, the large vehicle was 200 yards ahead. This was in a section with a creek crossing, and a large hill going around a curve. It was a typical Atlanta driving experience.

At Peachtree, the large vehicle was waiting for PG behind a red light. It was a silver GMC Yukon, with a Georgia Tech prestige license plate. (The tag number is available to an appropriate law enforcement agency.) The Yukon was stopped in the middle of the crosswalk. The red light took a few minutes, before PG made a left turn and went home.
