    Because we have to get to work. If they would slow down, they could make it just fine. Just because the speed limit is 55 (or higher) doesn’t mean to you attempt to drive that in these conditions.

      Angela is correct, we must get to work. Speed isn’t always the issue though. I had a person crash in front of me this morning and our top speed wasn’t even 40. The roads are that bad.

      In response to Cindy. Not everyone has the luxury of sitting on her fat rear pointing fingers at others who must get to work or lose a job.

    Just drove from the RVA to Raleigh. Left at 4:30am. Saw 3 or 4 flipped cars 2 major multi car accidents and a poor woman fall on the sidewalk while walking her dog. Every accident I saw was on or directly after a bridge, who knew!?!? Stay inside, if you must drive, drive cautiously and leave a ton of room between you and the vehicle in front of you, yeah?
