The three were able to exit the vehicle, and were standing on the side of the road, when the driver of the truck they tried to pass, came back and veered into them, causing the death of one. Media coverage reports three young devout Christians in their early 20,s.

Our country is in mourning, what has happened to society and when did we lose our humanity? Why did it become an insult, if someone wants to pass?

I was a victim of someone's road rage last summer. I don't get it, what's the hurry? My credo is drive to arrive.

Killing someone because they wanted to pass?????????
This happened about 20 minutes from our home. It's very sad.

I usually see ladders on cars lengthwise . . with a couple of loops of kitchen twine and a big hairy arm holding it down.

Don't ask me about the time I moved a queen mattress and box spring on top of a VW Jetta 20 years ago.

Most shocking personal experience, occurred a couple of years ago.

On my way to work, heard sirens. Took my foot off the gas pedal, vehicle still moving. Senses in high gear (i.e hearing, visual) trying to locate direction Emergency vehicle(s) travelling. Only seconds later, a full squad of ambulance, cops and firetruck were coming in my direction. I pulled over, as far as possible, to the side of the road, so as to not impede. Not only because it is a legal requirement, but it is obviously an EMERGENCY.

The "person" behind me, passed and caused the emergency response team to veer and slow their vehicles.

People don't think........what if it was his mother, wife, child?

Between yappin' on the cell phone, blasting music from the "system", and dark tinted windows it's a wonder there aren't more collisions on the roadways. What freaks me out is the truckers yappin' on their cell phones, cruising at 80 mph, and hauling over 85,000 pounds of truck/cargo. Yikes!!
