  • Darn it all. Used to be I dreaded the first snows because people had lost their snow driving skills over the summer. Now, with the sudden flurry of crashes, I guess that the extra long dry period has done the same to the skills needed for rain driving too.

    I hope this driver recovers well.

    • I’ve seen that slowing happening over the last couple of years.

    • People still use use SKILLs for driving? I was under the impression most folks now get in their car, start texting and half-assed try to make the car go somewhere while they facebook friends and watch reality shows. They certainly drive like this is the case.

      • You ain’t kidding. They give out driver’s licenses to anybody no matter how stupid they might be.

      • This is why the county needs better/faster/more public transit. It is FINE to Facebook and watch TV on your phone while you’re riding the bus!

        • People would drive their vehicles far differently if they were forced to walk or ride a bicycle/motorcycle for a couple of years and not be able to drive a motor vehicle during that time, in that their situational awareness would be greatly increased for the rest of their lives.

  • Jeeps have been the majority of wrecks over the last few years near me. they’re designed to move slow over rough terrain. people buy them then drive fast on pavement.

  • Pray the driver will be okay. Not a very good way to start your Friday.
