Yesterday, it took many of us hours to get home. My 35 mile drive took almost four hours due to, in succession, a five-car fender bender on East I-90, a roll over that closed two lanes of North 405 at SE 8th, another earlier accident at 160th on 405 (a real hot spot) THEN a double fatality on 522. On a clear, dry afternoon, no less.
What makes me most angry are the drivers who refuse to PAY ATTENTION, maintain their vehicles and/or drive as if theirs is the only destination that matters while assuming the rest of us can read their minds. These jack-asses hurt and kill people in too preventable crashes.
Due to actually witnessing the following offensive driving tactics and a few frightening experiences at the hands of other drivers in the last few decades, I feel the need to assume that 90% of other vehicles on the road are driven by a drunk, stoned, texting, eating, make-up applying, child-tending, tweeting, selfie-taking, sleep deprived, late-running, nail-polishing, dashboard musician, angry, lost moron in order to make it anywhere safely.
We, as individuals, are our own best defense when it comes to driving safely.
