    Too many people drive like maniacs on our roads. Their terrible driving is inescapable as riding a bike – or even walking – is far more dangerous than driving a car. I’m considering purchasing a cement truck to use for my daily commute. Sure, the gas mileage will be awful, but so what, at least I’ll feel a lot safer on the road.

    Does “near Lakeside” mean “in the course of executing an illegal turn” such as the one I witnessed by a taxi van on Monday evening around 5:45 pm?

    Like moths to a light bulb, fatally attracted to light poles!

      Drivers who don’t understand how to operate a vehicle more like it don’t make this a racist matter.
