Ilive less than 200ft.from Marshall rd.,and 40 years at this address.Everyday I see speeders.Every school day I see drivers past stopped school buses that are dropping off or picking up students,just about all go past the school buses iilegally,a federal law to stop for school buses when those lights are on.Carelessness abounds,stupidity is likely the reason.I have'nt crossed Marshall rd the last few years by obeying the traffic signals because of people like that woman,because most ignore traffic signals,crossing when the light is on "walk",can get you killed.So,I cross as soon as I have a chance to cross regardless of the traffic signals.Then that old trick to go into another lane,say a left turn only lane,then jump ahead of the straight away traffic,to bypass all that are before them.In other words,they don't want to wait their turn.This is also done with parking lots,drive through them to get around a traffic light,back onto the very street they were already on.I mentioned this type of behavior early this summer.And the risks that goes with it.7 years ago,on Marshall rd,some guy would come to this area,did'nt live here,almost everynight,speeding about the neighborhood,I would come out and litterally shout to that guy to stop,I called for him to stop and confront me,I called 911,I gave a description of the car,they pursued.What happened after that,I don't know.Later that summer,he returned and killed that 14yr.old girl!No one else would try to stop this guy but me.I was the only one in my neighborhood who shouted at this guy.and I don't have kids.Where are the adults that do have kids?These bast**ds need to be stopped.

Driver licenses are given too lienently.Too many never should have one.A competency test would be in order for all applying to drive a car.There is more to driving than just where the gas and brake pedals are!This goes on just about everywhere I go,red light runners,speeding,butting in line of traffic,getting in the wrong lane then trying to change to the wanted lane at everyones elses expense.hey,you made the mistake,deal with it,don't make everyone else pay for your mistakes.There have been deaths before on Marshall,there will be more.

Still reckless drivers on Marshall rd.Last night,a new jeep,going down the road,no lights on.Does'nt that driver get a clue that it's dark out?why are so many driving at night with no lights on?A few days ago,someone in the "Sound off" section in the Daily Times,telling people(during day light)when it rains to put their lights on.Now,here is a person concerned about no lights on when it rains,no one mentions about the night time drivers without lights but me.Is'nt that worse to drive at night with no lights than daytime without lights?Then also yesterday,I see this driver in the right lane(right turn only sign) then makes a left turn in front of a van,nearly causing an accident.This is done to get ahead of everyone else.Those people don't believe in waitng their turn."A" holes is too nice a name for them.

I think people are getting their license to young!! it should be 21 yr's old.. and if you are elderly you should have to take a test again once hitting a certain age. I'm a driver and it amazes me what i see on the road people in thier 60,70 maybe older driving, I've wittnessed a couple elderly people driving right threw stop signs, red lights it's sad. But 16 is way.. way to young to be given a license to

No argument that 16 is too young,but also,it's the maturity factor,even people at ages 25-60,are very poor drivers,wonderiong who passed them in that test.Just about an hour ago tonight,another car going along the road,just turned off Marshll,dark color car with no headlights on or any lights at all!This was 7:10pm.In my 36 years of driving,I seen it all.Age is a factor,but those who should know better(21-60yr.olds)do some reckless driving.Some adults never mature,I was more a mature as a teen than some co-workers 15 years older.

Today,12-04-09,at noon time going down Garret rd and Avon,another driver in the wrong lane,heading north on Garret,in the south bound lane.There was one car ahead of me,both of us waiting for a green light,when this guy about my age,maybe a little older,was over the yellow line,facing oncomming traffic!Just to get ahead of the two in front of him.Too many drivers don't giveadamn,about anyones safty,even their own.That is the type of driver that should never have one.Then about 2pm,another guy drives into our allyway becaus eof raodwork being done,traffic detoured,had a styrofaom plate in his left hand,full of pasta,while driving!Any kid could have come along and get whacked by this idiot.He was going over the speed limit before abruptly turning into the ally.Jerks like the 2 I seen today,are costing us all higher insurance rates,besides the public safty issues.Again,the law is far to leinent with people that have no right to be driving,and I hold them equally responsible,for not addressing the current problem.

12-08-09.11am,another driver does wrong on Marshall rd.In the right turn lane,traffic light is red,this person not only runs the red light,it turns left.this person was in the left turn lane,but went over to the right lane to go around the car stopped for the red light in the left lane,to do this offense.I guess said person was too good to wait,I guess said person thinks traffic lights are for everyone else.
