…when you are in a left turn lane…turn left! Do not go straight and run the drivers going straight off the road!
…when you are turning right and there are 2 lanes of traffic turning left that have the light…don’t try to “beat” the first one coming at you! It just ticks us off!
…when it is evening, but not quite dark, but there is no sun…turn your lights on! Last night at about 4:30 on my way home, I needed to change lanes on a city street and thankfully caught a glimpse of a car to my right just before I would have pulled into him…dark gray day…dark gray car…no lights…really thankful I didn’t hit him!
…it snowed a bit last night, city streets weren’t horrible this morning, but they weren’t dry…drive accordingly. Even the interstates weren’t in great shape, hence the huge backups around town.
…the “slow” or right lane on the city streets or the interstate is not the passing lane – if we are in that lane and driving the speed limit or slower if the road conditions warrant it, GET OFF MY A**! Your lack of planning to have enough time to arrive at your destination is not my problem, but it could get you injured or killed if you don’t slow down!
…Emerson Avenue runs North/South through the city and from 10th street to Kessler is a 4 lane road…THE SPEED LIMIT IS 40 MPH and there are a couple of SCHOOL ZONES…please at least drive the speed limit and slow down for the school zones!
Rant over and “let’s be careful out there” everyone, remember, getting somewhere quickly is not worth your life!
