Seems to me traffic is getting worse and driving is becomming more dangerous. The growing population of course means more vehicles on the road. My wife was recently hit by a tailgater while pulling into our driveway. I'm a daily commuter in town and do my best to obey traffic laws. I routinely witness red light runners, tailgating, speeding, rolling stops and modified/aftermarket (loud) mufflers.

There are several problems with the traffic offenses in the City of Paradise. One is the large number of senior citizens plying the roads, who should be having one of their children or grandchildren doing the driving.

I do notice the primary offenders to be the young punks in those lowered cars that drag over speed bumps and have the mufflers modified to sound like someone passing gas.

I also do my best to obey the traffic laws and it is frustrating to find those who are impeding traffic, or looking in your mirror to see a tailgater.

I don't see many red light runners at all, but I do see the tailgaters and speeders, like that guy in the maroon Ford F-250 pickup that is lifted, has chrome wheels, and a personalized license plate (that I have written down for future needs). He is heading down Skyway just about every morning driving like a bat from down below with its tail on fire, and then he heads north on Hwy. 99.

Here's some food for thought from the Quote Garden:

Someone I know got a $500 ticket for tailgating here in Paradise. Laughed at him and think he's a moron now. He used to think he was such hot sh*t. Lot of money to be made in this town because of the stupid tailgaters. Keep on tailgating we need the money up here.
