To the editor: Summer or winter, it doesn’t matter. We have drivers who are unable to drive the posted speed limit, refuse to drive at or allow others to drive at a safe speed when road conditions are bad, or just need to be at the front of all cars at the stoplight. Whatever the reason is, they weave in and out of traffic, ride someone’s bumper, and speed around and past you at the slightest possible opening. This will never change.
Wednesday, Feb. 2, one such driver sped around a snow grader and, because they were unaware that another grader was in front of it, they “plowed” into it and ultimately caused a 10-car pileup. It was a beautiful, sunny, clear day. There was no new, fresh snow to make the roads slick. It was one driver’s impatience that caused the accidents.
