    Be careful driving

    Just a reminder, the quickest drives can be deadly.

    I have a 10 minute drive to work including a 4-mile stretch of highway.

    Called a "safety corridor" with several short on/off lanes and a 50 mph speed limit.

    This morning a drunk decided to drive south in the northbound lane and killed herself while totaling another vehicle and putting the other driver in the hospital.

    My co-worker drove this same route a couple hours earlier, I drove it a couple hours later. Still flare dust, glass and blood on the highway. I've driven this stretch thousands of times.

    Be careful.

    Only drunks younger that about 50 yrs old. My age group learned how to drive drunk because we had a lot of practice.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
