I don't know who's fault the accident was but I feel for the family of the car involved especially this close to the holidays.
I can say that in the last five years my husband and I have driven to and from work daily on 64 we have come to call traveling this road the gauntlet of tragedy and fear!
Even if you go five to ten miles over the speed limit some people will literally almost run you off the road by severely tailgaiting, flashing headlights and trying to pass regardless of the oncoming traffic!
We have been run off the road, our mother has been run off the road, and we have had so many close head on collisions, that I try not to dwell on it!
It's so stupid, because scientists have proven that because of the way traffic flows you only gain two whole seconds!!
So is it really worth going 80 to 90 just to get where you need to be, when you may not get there at all????
Or even worse you may cause some innocent person to die because of your bad choice?
The dump trucks and the 18 wheelers are the worst!!
I saw one truck run someone off the road and never even slowed down!!
They were o.k. but I'm sure they had to change thier britches when they got home!!
Slow Down People, especially now with the holidays we all need a break!
Maybe I should videotape our trip to work and home for one month to show people just how bad it truly is!! Slow Down! Please!
