Note to CSRA's dangerous drivers



This is to the drivers in the Central Savannah River Area traveling around completely oblivious to the posted speed limits, unaware of red lights and apparently ignorant as to the operation of turn signals.

Their total disregard for the law and the safety of all the people with whom they share the road is appalling. They know who they are.

They are not the only ones on the road. It is not their right to drive as fast as they like, weaving in and out of traffic without signaling, so that they are the first in line at the next traffic light - or maybe they'll run through it.

Let me remind them that they share the road with me, my friends, neighbors, co-workers and my precious 19-year-old-child.

I ask them to take a moment when they get into their cars and think about their actions on the road.

Whether they like them or not, traffic laws and speed limits exist to make the roads safer for all drivers. Unfortunately, many drivers act like the laws do not apply to them.

No one is above the law. Even if they don't care about their own safety, I ask they give consideration to the safety of others.
