Slow down you idiots!

A day or two ago (break into song with me!)
I thought I’d run a light [yellow]
But instead I stopped
And did it just in time.

But a guy in the other lane
Two whole car lengths behind
Pressed down his gas peddle
And ran the red light.

For me the light did change
And I drove the speed limit
Making it to the next light
To have a big surprise.

There sat the other guy!
He risked his life and others.
He caused great distress.
He saved himself no time.

He sped like demon.
He got nowhere real fast.
On top of that he wasted,
He wasted much gas!

He risked his life and others.
He got nowhere real fast.
He wasted much gas.
He saved himself no time….

This morning I was the lead car at a stop light. The light turned green and the other cars continued to come, and come and I went ahead and accelerated and they came. Had I the gumption I could have driven straight through the pack of cars continuing to blatantly run the red light. Does this mean we need red light cameras. Let me exclaim "Hell no"! This happened at the intersection of Kington Pike where the state troopers office sits. What this means is a state trooper or city officer needs to stand in the grass in front of the state troopers office and flag down and ticket the offenders.

We live in a cove. It has 7 houses on it but sometimes this cove (a straight stretch and a circle) seems like a speedway. We are off the beaten path but for some reason we are the world’s turnaround. Sometimes I park our cars obnoxiously in the street so that the strangers are slowed in their efforts to turn our nearly private street into a dragway. Always seems to help at least for a bit. Blogging Baby points our a much more creative solution.
