near-something experience

We were on our way to an SCA event in Boone, Iowa this morning, and somewhere along Highway 17 a car headed towards us pulled out to pass several cars...at which point it was really headed towards us.

I was incredulous for a few seconds; surely this moron wouldn't plow into us while passing—but he either considered living irrelevant or figured it was up to us to get out of his way. Fortunately, my lady wife was driving, and she managed to move onto the gravel shoulder without losing control, moments before his car moved through the position where we would have otherwise been.

I really wish I'd gotten this cretin's license plate number.
