Them Drivers be CRAZY out there because...
2 days ago: Son is driving home from work, felt tired a bit off and slowed down below the 55mph rural speed limit.
Came up on a 4 way stop sign intersection about 20 yards ahead, and saw an SUV on the cross street blow through at about 70mph!
1 day ago: Im riding home my normal commute. I know the street lights pretty well and how long they stay green or red (after 8 years).
Coming up on an intersection in a residential area, 35mph speed limit. The light is green and I have several seconds to make it. The pickup truck in front of me stops short, because a car blew through the red light on the cross street going about 40mph. It had been red in his direction for more than 10 seconds and he blew right through it!
This morning: Riding past the town High School. All the traffic is backed up in both directions, because a car pulling out of the HS parking lot rear ended a pickup truck.
The pickup truck pulled ahead and off the road, but the lady driving the car STOPPED where she hit the truck, put her emergency flashers on, and got out of the car
because: broken headlight and scratched bumper!
So now there are four people standing in the street directing traffic around her STOPPED CAR in the middle of the lane, because its not bad enough that cars bump into each other just in the normal traffic, now we need to have people standing in the street and cars blocking the lane and cars backed up for two blocks, so the police can come and take 25 eight by 10 color glossy photos of the car with a broken headlight and scratched bumper, and measure the skid marks.
PEOPLE BE CRAZY OUT THERE!
Ride accordingly !
