Posting away on the thin ice of a new daaa-a-a-aaaaayyy

 

Use caution on the roads folks.

 

If there is a roadblock, it is probably there for a reason. Detours are new traffic patterns so people using them should probably be more cautious than usual.

To the driver of the light green Ford pickup; you know who you are because you gave me a dirty look after almost crashing into me – 30 mph through an alley way is probably excessive – SLOW DOWN.

And the woman in the small white SUV who cut the corner coming off of Church Street and almost ran head-on into me – I’m sure wherever you were going was not that important, slow down. No local errand is worth a life or even an injury.

These two close calls happened seconds apart around the back side of the municipal lot between Church and Main Street while the crew working on the Swanson Building had the road blocked off.

 

The crew did the right thing. No one can fault them, but the drivers going around the detour were clearly not using their heads or paying attention.

Reports of drivers trying to find their way through the roadblock, speeding through the parking lot or the alley just underline how silly it would be to get hurt on a Thursday afternoon while trying to drive to lunch. Slow down, pay attention and don’t kill off any of your fellow motorists.
