A word

Today I have a new word for you:

tarsoplumbic = lead-footed, ie: one who drives their car (or other conveyance) too fast.

This condition has been known to afflict me sometimes, though, thank the Lord, not too often. However, if you go by accident record, then my wife is the better driver.

is there a word for extreme tarsoplumbia, ie the inability to remove one's foot from the gas pedal at all? because i am a bicylist and would love to have something to shout at the people who try to run me over.

I think that word would come in handy when muttering under my breathe at the way my brother drives. Cause you can't exactly say anything or shake your head near him, cause he gets all wierdy like, as if it's normal to drive at the speed of light.
(If my sentences make no sense - it's because my vocabulary is very basic... lol... I have a hard time explaning anything in words - as my teachers often comment on... grrr)

By the way... how do you come up with these words!?!?!?!! I have a hard enough time making up names for characters, let alone names of actual things...
