(*accidents, *right) anybody heard of spell check?

HOW is it the ROADWAY'S fault, when someone drives too fast for the conditions, and gets into a wreck?
If I'm on a well lit interstate, in dry conditions, with no dangerous crosswinds, then I will drive the posted limit. If the road is poorly lit, wet, or there are dangerous winds, then I just SLOW DOWN. I it ALSO helps if you DON'T sit on your seat belts!!

No we need people to pull their heads out of their butts and stop driving drunk, wear seatbelts and slow down. I wish El Paso PD would start enforcing laws and making people realize driving is a Privilege and not a Rite.
El Paso is one of the safest cities as long as your not driving.

Accidnets on Loop 375 keep occuring either late at night or early in the morining before the sun has come up. This should make it obvious that we need more light out there.
