Are Parkway Drivers More Reckless Than Ever?
Maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy but lately, and especially on my way to work this morning, I feel like Parkway drivers are getting more reckless than ever.
I witnessed no fewer than 4 almost-accidents, and could have been a part of 2 on my daily commute today.
And they were all due to the same thing - drivers zipping between lanes and cutting others off, only to either have to slam on their brakes right away or zipping right into another lane.
The one that almost drove me off the road was a New York livery car (identifiable by the familiar "T&LC" license plate) who was insistent on making a space where there wasn't one.
And it seems like those drivers are never the ones who get pulled over. It's people like you and me, who may be going a few miles over the speed limit, not the ones who are on the precipice of causing a tragedy.
Again, maybe it's just me getting older and falling into a, "hey you darn kids! Get off of my lawn!" rut. Or maybe it truly is that as society depends on cars more than ever, we're all getting a little too comfortable propelling big machines at each other.
What do you think? Have you noticed this trend too? Comment below and feel free to vent along with me!
