Everyone, slow the eff down on the road

Yesterday, I saw one accident on my way home from work. Today, on my way to work, I saw yet another accident.

Slow down people. I'm sick of hearing the now familiar screech-crunch sound.

Just two rules to follow and we'll all be better off.

1) Yellow lights mean slow down, not speed up and go faster.

2) Put down the damn telephone. If it's that important gets a handsfree or pull over. I watched as the crasher did not stop talking on the phone before, during, and after the accident.

That's it, two simple rules and I won't have to through hate in your direction.

I agree with both your rules. However, on highways, I have to disagree with the "slow down". I mean, sure if you're going 100+, you should. Most of the problems I see on highways, though, are people cruising along *safely* at 85mph or so, and some idiot in the left lane doing 55, with cars passing them on the right.

Yes, you are right. There is no reason to have a very big speed on the highways in the evening or young morning.

Couldn't agree more! Being a fairly recent driver in California and coming from a country where using your mobile in your car without hands free kit equals to losing your license, I feel extremely unsafe on the California freeways... Add to this that it has been proven than drivers engaged in a mobile phone conversation are four times as likely to crash than other drivers...

Oh and I throw hate in their direction without any mercy!
