    I have seen so many people running red lights it is unreal......the other day we were at a red light and stopped on Pioneer Crossing heading north and the car in front of us also stopped, after about 15 seconds the car in front of us just ran the light I guess he didn't want to wait anymore and of course the traffic heading south left lane turn was going at the same time so they had to stop because this idiot wanted to run the light and made everyone stop at the intersection.....Also 2 cars on University Ave red light turning right and says no turn on red but they didn't even slow down they went right through it.

    One time at, the same intersection. I was traveling with a dump truck on my tail and the light ahead turned red. If I had stopped the truck would have plowed right through me and I would have been crushed. "

    I'm guessing that you missed the part in the article, where the car ran the light, right into the side of the truck. Yeah, trucks can be dangerous on the roads, but, not in this case.

    Why no seat belt? Everyone else got cuts and bruises. The driver of a car is like a pilot on an aircraft. You're in charge and responsible. I won't put the car in gear unless everyone is buckled up. Poor family. Lost a wife and mother.
