DRIVERS: Is polite extinct?

Print Article

Iíd like to take this opportunity to thank all you polite and courteous drivers on the road. You know who you are. Youíre the ones who know a yellow light is to slow down and stop instead of accelerating to jeopardize an intersection.

You also utilize your turn signals. Seems like a waste to have paid for them on a new car and not use them. They will cost you plenty to replace at a body shop because you didnít use them.

You also fully stop at a four-way stop and allow the rightful person to proceed.

You give a space and donít block a driveway in or out of a business while waiting for a red light to change.

You also donít park in the loading/fire lane at grocery stores, hindering the traffic flow. Especially like businesses with their name emblazoned on their truck door pulling a boat/trailer/camper. (You donít have my business if you donít respect the general populace.)

But Iím worried. I havenít seen you polite and courteous drivers in a while. Where are you? I hope youíre OK and look forward to driving with you again.

P.S. I have an idea that could save our road crews a ton of labor hours and material costs. They could just put up signs that say no road construction ahead.
