There we were in our little bus driving into Istanbul in heavy traffic when we noticed a fender bender in the outside lane. Just as the driver slowed so we could all rubber neck we heard something go bump into our rear-end. Of course the guide and driver had to go out and see what happened. All this was too much for the driver of a Benz SUV. We had no sooner gotten started again than he took off in a huff weaving through traffic.

But that wasn't good enough, so as soon as the driver saw the tram go by he pulled onto the tram tracks and drove down them passing everyone. We caught up to him shortly, just as a policeman had stopped him. Gotcha!
