FOR the ultimate infuriating experience, nothing beats crawling around the Beltway in 10-foot spurts only to discover that there's no road construction, no stalled car in the middle of the highway and no bad accident. You've just wasted an hour getting from I-95 to Frederick Road because somebody slowed down to see why a state trooper pulled over a Chevy van.The lights on the police cruiser aren't flashing. The officer and the presumed van owner aren't arguing. There's no ambulance in sight, no flares, no glass on the road, not a scratch on the van.In short, there's nothing interesting going on here.

SEATTLE -- The car salesman spoke Spanish, sharing the "good news" with customer Teresa Belmont that she was approved for a loan to buy a used Chevy van - at 15 percent interest. Some car buyers were getting loans for as low as 4 percent at the time. But as a Mexican immigrant with little credit history, 15 percent was the best she could expect, the salesman claimed. The Puyallup, Wash., woman, a single mother of four who works two jobs, felt she had no other choice. A year later, Belmont learned just how badly she'd been taken.
