  • Hoping everyone is ok.

  • Not a place for a traffic collision

  • I was on 299 last night about that time. I must have just missed it. I do think that traffic was going a little fast and people were driving a little more wild than usual. The other thing I’m seeing — people are crossing the double yellow lines more than they used to. If you don’t know how to drive these roads, pay attention. When you do know how to drive these roads, look out for those who don’t!
