  • Everyday there is a wreck of some kind.

  • Hope their ok.Another wreck,wow this is getting ridiculous.Cell phone,or just mindless driving?not saying that happen here to be clear. I see people everyday talking on there phones,or texting. I even saw a police officer talking on his phone.guess that’s ok.idk.be safe

  • Actually, the cop on the phone is no better than you or I are!!! He should be setting an example modeling how NOT to use a phone while driving!!! As they keep telling us… PULL OVER TO USE THE PHONE!!!!! You should have written down the time of day & the vehicle license number & turned his ( I assume it was a male Deputy) in for a vehicle code violation!!! They certainly don’t hesitate when we, the general public get caught!!!

  • Silver, grey and white seems to be the new typical. Is this stranger than fiction or is it just coincidence?
    Computerized cars will be the death of all us yet.

  • POLICE, FIRE, AND AMBULANCES AND OUR TAXI’S ARE EXEMPT FROM THE CELL PHONE LAW’S THEY NEED THEM TO DO THEIR JOBS. GLAD THIS PERSON IS OK!!

  • Southbound? Which way is southbound on an E-W road?
