Welcome To Canuckistan

Where we’re very polite (even when we’re ranting about things that irritate us)

I’d say they’re among the nation’s luckiest …

There’s a brief article in this morning’s Free Press about Detroit-area drivers being among the nation’s safest. Based upon what I’ve seen in the nearly 5 years I’ve been a frequent passenger in Metro Detroit, I’d say they’re lucky rather than safe. I couldn’t even begin to list the number of monumentally stupid things I’ve seen people do on the roads, but the one that continues to amaze me is how folks continue to drive 70+ MPH no matter what the weather conditions are like (blizzard, driving rain, etc). 

As The Clam’s mother or father has said (I can’t remember who it was), “People in Detroit drive like they’ve lost their will to live”.

  6. Clam, I only know that the one time I allowed you to drive my car, it (and my beloved) came home intact. That’s good enough drivin’ for me! 😀
