When Cicadas Attack

Most of the time it's a bee, but this morning's "moron drivinig into scenery" story is brought to you by a cicada:

A Montgomery County woman said a cicada caused her to crash her car into a fire hydrant on Sunday.

Normally I'd laugh a lot harder, but Ellen yells every time one thunks into the windshield. Which of course does me no end of good. Of course, if one actually flew in the car, well, there'd be some frantic braking for sure. Which is not great on the highways around DC, where the "2 second rule" has grown a decimal and become the ".2 second rule". Damned tailgaters.

What lovely roads do you drive on where you get 0.2 seconds? Normally, I'm used to people getting so close that they're in the car with me...
