Back to the topic, no one much ever says anything to me when I'm stopped. But I finally got, "you look like an astronaut" from a woman at an office i had to stop at the other day. I thought, better than looking like a package of hamburger, but I just smiled and moved on.
July 4 when I was 16, I took my boss' granddaughter for a ride to my friend's house for a party, in my mom's car. Went right off a very similar drop, luckily a stump caught the car. I fell quite a few feet when I opened my door. Had her wave down the car that was coming around the bend. It was her parents.
