  1. Let’s be honest,since they have worked on the highway traffic has been INSANE..Morning and afternoon. Why? Because of school traffic. I have to take my child thru the traffic to school and from the school home,let’s just say bumper to bumper the whole way right pass the hospital, to the red roof…I can see why there could have been a bumper to bumper collision…You pick up speed after you pass Dr. BECKS old office to top the hill and go over it,so when you come to a stop at the red light,if your not a car length away….you have to pump your brakes hard to stop. That’s early in the morning. Obviously,I’m a very observant driver so I make sure I watch all my mirrors and stay far away enough so if they do Bow up and stop I’m not hitting someone in the tail. People need to slow down. I’ve learned my lesson on the whole speeding thing there along time ago. I don’t understand why people try to hurry ,when obviously you see two lines of cars in front and behind you. Your not goi g anywhere until it clears. So lesson today slow down,be patient and pay attention.
