Where is civility on the roadways today?

TeninoJuly 22, 2013 

I wish to add to the comments made by Seth Parker in The Olympian on July 17. My experience is similar. It has become a trial to drive from home to any location. I observe the posted speed limits that are completely ignored by most drivers. Even in the slow lane on Interstate 5 going the speed limit, I am tailgated.

Drivers do not leave any space between cars/trucks so that if one must stop suddenly, an accident is bound to occur. Drivers will pass me on a 50 mph posted speed limit as though I was parked, and when I get to the next stoplight there they are. What is the big hurry?

Drivers mirror the lack of civility and courtesy that is the guiding force of social intercourse today.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
