I need to point out before you read this: I don't give up easily.
I leave from
Today I drove up in a ground blizzard. I was too
foolish (Mom told me not to call people stupid… I would assume she meant myself
too) to take my radio equipment home so I could broadcast from there. At times
I was driving 60 mph, other times, 10 mph. No news here if you have lived in
The difference today is drivers have taken to turning their flashers during storms. I asked a Captain of the Highway Patrol and he even recommended it. I asked a number of truckers and they even said it helps. Overwhelmingly, most of the motoring public I spoke to said they are doing more and more of it!
This doesn't seem right to me. (As you know if you listened this morning…) Am I such a creature of habit (see above) that I can't get past flashers meaning only certain things? Those things only include: you are pulled over on the side of the road; you are driving an ambulance, a fire truck or school bus.
Okay. I found out today, most people disagree. The last time I picked a fight like this it was about the center ripple boards. The worst part: now I think they're great.
Maybe I can give up sometimes… Joel
