  1. Over the last several years traffic has become denser and the way people drive has gotten worse. Many more are distracted, aggressive or downright careless with what seems like a lack of understanding a several thousand pound car at 80 or even 30 mph is a deadly weapon.

    My favorite is the ‘let me Facebook/have a text conversation’ while driving and the ‘if I can squeeze in here I will get to the next red light faster’….

    It is a wonder how doesn’t happen more often. Thankfully no one lost their life today.
    start handing out tickets to get the idiots off the roads or in check.
