Inconsiderate drivers

I was seconds from the fatal accident on Highway 49 on Saturday. I must say I was totally upset with the way most of the traffic would not move over for the emergency vehicles trying to get through.

As most vehicles pulled over to each side of the road, other drivers came right up the center of the road, causing a severe traffic jam. No one was able to move and then, still not being considerate, those same drivers backed down the road and some also tried to turn around before police officers said to do so.

Not only does everyone speed on the highway, but most of our county residents are rude. How would they have felt if that was their family member laying down there and the emergency vehicles couldn’t get through? They all need to slow down.
