I hope the patrolman has a good recovery, but it sounds as if it will be long
and tough, and due to inept driving. It is sad, and we need to remember with
respect and concern, all who put their lives on the line to do their jobs.
Agreed!Now fix the headline, as apparently, from an updated story,
it is four fingers and not three.
Mercy! Here I am agreeing the Rifle.Or maybe they just
shouldn't be driving at all. It's appalling watching drivers blast
past disabled vehicles, construction workers, emergency vehicles at the side of
the road.And when a driver does try to slow down or pull into an
adjacent lane, it means risking your neck. About a month ago, I came up on a
Highway Patrol car with flashing lights on the right side of I-15. I slowed and
moved left into the next lane, and some clown in a little red something or other
blasted past me on the right at a speed well over the 65 limit. Other times
I've had drivers climb right on my back bumper when I've slowed down.
How is it conceivable that a van could run into the back of a semi traveling in
the slow lane with it's blinkers flashing? In the second accident that
will jeopardize this trooper's career in law enforcement a driver had to
look down to see how to shift gears?Perhaps people who can't
operate manual transmissions should consider sticking with automatics.
