Drivers make 49 unsafe

Ed Johnson

If nobody drives on Highway 49, is it a dangerous road?

What makes it dangerous? Drivers.

If those who use 49 obeyed the laws, observed the rules of the road and used a little common sense, 49 would not be a dangerous road to travel. One should consider the conditions and pay attention to their surroundings. Talking on a cell phone should be forbidden. Having the volume of the radio so loud that one can’t hear emergency vehicles is not a very safe practice.

Let’s all make an effort to drive responsibly and quit blaming it on the road.
