    I lost a dear friend of mine a couple years ago, she had her turn signal on, waiting for on going traffic to pass before she turned onto a road coming home from work, and this person wasn't paying attention and ran into her at 50 mph, she was thrown out of her car.

    She was flown to the hospital, where she passed due to her injuries, I remembered talking to her just an hour before the crash, we made plans to see eachother that evening when she got off work. It's like I'm living a bad dream. Every second counts when you're behind the wheel.

    I wish your friend the very best of luck, and health.

    Here's something that could be good to watch, especially if you've found that you've condescending attitude toward traffic regulations or safe driving (warning: footage includes parts that can shock sensitive people):

    Good advise to everyone. I drove for over 30 years without having an accident. Its easy to get arrogant and think your a safe driver, then BAM someone hits you. No one plans on having an accident, that's why they are called accidents. Be safe be sane be sober and live.

    Its a good reminder this time of year especially. So many celebrations and the temptation to drive impaired. Plus people seem to be in more of a hurry over the Holidays.

    This New Years a distant relative of mine got into the car with her one year old son and a group of friends. She didn't have her son in a seat belt and none of them had one on either. The guy wasn't drunk but was doing drugs. He started to speed down a road, drifted, hit railroad tracks, sent the car onto it's side and it slid (very fastly) into a pole. Everyone in that car died. The emergency response did not know the baby was in the car because he was under the others.

    Please make sure your children and yourself are properly buckled in. Remember everything you do not only has an effect on you but effects everyone that is a part of your life.

    I completely agree with this, Allie!

    I, for one, may suffer a touch of road rage, but ONLY for stupid driver's. Perhaps that sounds silly, but I really don't care, until you either my car or my passengers in danger.
    Now, to be honest, I LOVE my car. And I mean love. I will FREAK if you put a coffee cup or start wiping dirt off it with your hand. Do not TOUCH! So when some idiot who thinks they can drive swerves or mishandles on ice and starts aiming at me... Well, they'd just better hope that they don't get stuck and get away before I get my hands on them.

    I am constantly amazed at the amount of people who can't remember how to drive in snow and ice EVERY YEAR. It's not rocket science, people. Snow and ice changes the road conditions, bloody well change with it!
    The first snowfall we had, a three year old little girl was killed in a double car accident on Highway 2 because the idiotic parent (I don't really care if you think that sounds too rough) was speeding in a snowstorm, lost control, and hit someone else. Now they have to live with the death of their child because they weren't smart enough to play it safe.

    Speeding, drinking or driving, kids whipping though traffic on crotch rockets? Go ahead, I'll pass you in the ditch, and if you think I'm going to stop and help, you've got another thought coming.
    I have NO patience, and I mean NONE, for stupid people. I tried. People just got stupider.

    I mean, good freaking Lord, what is it going to take for us to learn??
