Locals assist stalled driver

What a great place to live. On Feb.17, my car was misbehaving, stopped and would not start, at the corner of Mill Street and McCourtney Road, one of our busiest intersections. Two friends who were following me in case I had trouble, plus almost everyone stopped in traffic, jumped out of their cars to assist in any way they could. Two women pushed my car out of traffic and others directed traffic. My car was cleared of the intersection within 10 minutes. All of this was done with graciousness and smiling faces. Thank you, everyone.
