I’ve lived along Highway 49 near Gold Hill Road since 1985 and have witnessed many bizarre driving behaviors along this route.
Within a 1/4-mile radius of my property, I’ve witnessed drunk drivers, tweaked drivers, insane drivers, under-aged drivers, over-aged drivers, selfish and impatient drivers, hit-and-run drivers, fleeing-from-the-law drivers, car-sick drivers, a have-to-stop-and-poop-in-my-yard driver, completely lost drivers, a just-hit-a-deer-and-now-it’s-in-my-trunk-and-I’m-out-of-gas driver, throw-your-beer-cans-and-tobacco-butts-out-the-window drivers, and four now deceased drivers.
Lately, these occurrences are more frequent and more damaging. If we are studying human behavior and sociology, we should study driving habits. This country is deteriorating from within. Our driving habits are a direct reflection of that.
Don’t be part of the problem. If you really want to save the planet, live and drive with respect for yourself and those around you. It just may be that simple.
