    .there is only one solution to traffic problems..all you have to do is set your alarm 30 mins earlier and have a nice calm morning with your coffee and breakfast..being in a hurry is no fun and you can enjoy the commute..of course there are some folks who will never learn this lesson…they are easily spotted and you can , in most cases avoid them..”most cases”..enjoy getting to work or the DR. 15 mins. early..

    Amen, Steve. I have to go to the cancer center on Airport very often. I live in Flomaton. Honestly, the traffic scares me worse than the cancer ever did! I wish there was a way to tell these people that are cutting in and out of traffic, running red lights, speeding… “Hey. Slow down. Look around. Enjoy your life, stop rushing through it, cause you never know when what you know as ‘normal’ will come to a screeching halt.”

    I give thanks each and every time I drive into my own driveway, that the Lord protected us again. I know I’ll die someday, but I’d really prefer it not be by getting ground up like sausage in a traffic fatality!

    Hwy 29 has become a battle ground of wrecks. WHY?
    1. Speeding way over the limit.
    2. People not paying attention.
    3. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ times 2..
    4. The traffic is so congested all the time that ANY slight issue with someone there is little notice to the ones behind you to react.
    5. Defensive driving is not being practiced. Offensive only with little to no regard to others.
