Is it just me or have you noticed that drivers with cell phones in their ears are extremely dangerous? They weave all over the road, tailgate, come at you head-on and do all sorts of dangerous maneuvers.

I have been subjected to all kinds of driving near-misses lately. And I also have noticed that following the speed limit makes the driver behind you very cranky. As does coming to a complete stop at stop signs.

There always seems to be someone behind me who is annoyed at my driving. I follow the rules of the road and would like to see more of the same from other drivers.

Driving is a privilege, granted when you get a driver’s license; it is not a right. And the rules of the road are put in place for the safety of all of us. Come on, people, follow the rules for all our safety.

And pedestrians? Jumping out in front of my car on the street is not the proper way to cross a street. Jumping out into the street from between two cars is not only dangerous, it is against the law. Use the crosswalk, where pedestrians have the right of way, for your own safety.
