Last week Marian came close to a head-on when a guy in a car was looking down at his phone. The guy was completely in her lane of a two lane road. She had no where to go except to slam on her breaks and lay on the horn. The man looked up at the last second and jerked back into his lane. I could have lost her.
The fixation of the smart phone is insane people are completely addicted to answering the text. It's not going to get better but at least our MD law has made it illegal.
We have a five mile stretch of road between my house an I95 where nine fatalities have occurred over a span of 16 years. We bought our Tacoma off a MD state senator and we became friends. About four years ago I called him up and ask him if he could have Rumble Strips cut on the center line of the road. Three weeks later the job was done and we haven't had any fatalities since that day. I'm proud to say I've probably saved lives.
It's not about being careful out on the road it's only being lucky. The inconsiderate assholes are everywhere.
