Reckless

It has been raining here since Tuesday. Ida turned into a Nor'easter, so combined with the steady, non-stop rain, wind gusts have brought in hazardous driving conditions.

Why do people think that they can drive at normal speeds? You cannot drive at 70 mph with 4 inches of rain on the pavement and wind gusts of 40 mph. But no, some reckless people, while talking on cellphones, mind you, think that their giant high-profile vehicles make them immune from inclement weather.

Thanks, whoever you are that sped by then hit that pool of water....do you realize that you put all of our lives at risk who were on the other lane while you merrily zoomed past?

I hope the highway police who came to your rescue when you ended up in the ditch gave you a reckless driving citation.

Even 50 mph was too fast. Oh, I'm glad that the guardrail was there to stop you from jumping the median to the other direction. Sheesh, people, slow down.

There is something to be said for the horse and surrey.
Especially for human life but also for all those poor deer that don't stand a chance against hurtling steel boxes.
