I used to drive like a moron, which is to say, like ever driver I have ever seen from the state of Virginia.
I used to think that New Jersey drivers were bad until I had to drive through the endless state where lovers apparently go for whatever reason.
On a highway, Virigina drivers just kinda hang out in the left lane going whatever speed they want. They never pull over to the right if you come up behind them and, in fact, they start using the right lane as a way to pass drivers in the left lane.
If it was some isolated incident, I could understand, but this happened for the 47 hours or however long it takes to drive through that state.
Seriously, is there a Bermuda triangle in there? There is no reason that it should take so long to get through there. Weird.
Two drivers who caused traffic delays after crashing two hours apart in the same stretch of Interstate 78 in Upper Saucon Township during Tuesday’s rain have been cited for driving at unsafe speeds for conditions, according to state police at Fogelsvile.
Winston A. Rosario, 53, of Allentown was driving a tractor-trailer in the middle westbound lane when he lost control of his rig while braking on a curve approaching Route 309 about 2:45 p.m., a news release from state police said.
The truck slid off the road and skidded 75 feet along the center concrete barrier before it became stuck on top of the barrier in the area of mile marker 60.7, according to state police.
Two westbound lanes and one left eastbound lane were closed.
In the second accident, at 4:45 p.m., Andres Erbetti, 42, of Windsor, S.C., crashed a pickup into the concrete barrier after losing control on the wet highway. The left westbound lane was closed for about an hour.
State police said neither driver was injured. SOURCE: The Morning Call
There are definitely some drivers who speed up during inclement weather. It could be snowing ten feet per minute and all other drivers are just trying to make sure that they get home alive, but, some guy who bought a SUV is going to blow past you while also being annoyed so that 1. you can see that they have a vehicle that can do Mt. Everest hill climbs and 2. because they are pretentious jerks.
There is no where you REALLY need to be that quickly in a rain storm or snow storm or hurricane. Chillax, people.
