  1. Maybe if the lazy local police would step back up their patrols and speeding enforcement things would change… but they won’t…

    1. You think maybe they’re a little busy with what’s going down in the Park?

      Besides, what I see on the roads most days, folks staying in their lane is getting to be a bigger issue than speeding. I had three cars come around corners over the double yellow in my lane today! And I was on the road for under an hour. Don’t know if it’s cellphones or what, but nobody can keep it in their lane anymore.

    2. Peoples’ ignorance and stupidity isn’t the police’s fault.
      Perhaps they should place a social worker at every stop sign and traffic light to help the drivers who can’t control their own actions.

  2. Or maybe the person pulled out thinking they had enough time but misjudged, you all have nothing better to do
