LETTER: Value those on the road

This is an open letter to the driver of a white car that was entering the Clearbrook entrance to the East approximately at 7:45. My husband was in the left lane and the lane had ended and you decided to gun your car and pass us on the right.  Did you ever think for one minute that you could have caused a very serious accident.

Four years ago while driving on Sumas at 4th, a car decided to boot it across the intersection. Our car was right there and we could not do anything.  Both cars were totalled. There was nothing that we could have done.

Have you ever been in a accident on the freeway.  We have because someone was not paying attention and turned into the left lane when we were beside him.  Both our car and the F150 were totaled.  He spun out of control and hit the medium.  Our car when it was hit went left then my husband slowed down and pulled to the left and it was a miracle that we did not tip over as our car was going from right wheels to left wheels.

Do you realize the terrier that is associated with a serious accident. I am still having problems with my back since these accident.  My nerves are at the breaking point.

Did you read the article about men’s aggression when driving and how many deaths it causes.  There are a lot more men that are killed than women in accidents.  Maybe it is time that you start valuing not only your live, but those other people on the road. What is two seconds time difference arriving at your destination?
