Don.t You Think, Or Don.t You

The gulf close to where we live
The gulf close to where we live

Don’t you think, or don’t you. This is a question I ask other motorists several times a day as I drive the streets and roads in the state of Florida. This is my new home the Tampa, Clearwater St. Pete area. I am from Indiana the Indianapolis area and I am used to drivers flying along Interstate 465 around Indy at least going 85 in the 55 while smoking dope or fixing their hair and make-up. You throw in the driver reading what appears to be some sort of report or legal document talking on the cell phone while using a laptop and you have the normal driver. Yes, these things are normal and happen every day. Down here where U-turns are legal and turn signals use is optional I find myself not only driving defensively but driving scared. Drivers careen across three lanes only to go back two cross again and make a U-turn without the use of a turn signal. These are people who live here. Then in October thru March you have the Snowbirds who migrate south from Canada and beyond. Now I am aware that traffic laws vary state to state country to country, but couldn’t they at least obey our laws. I love the water the weather and the sound of the surf and I am lucky enough to live almost next to two of them. I am not asking for much, just think before you do something stupid. Like Ron White says, “ You Can’t Fix Stupid” but maybe you could repair it a little bit. At least while you are driving

      I frequently feel the need for an LED reader board sign that I can say things aloud and it will print it out for other drivers' edification.
