Spokane Driveras

Posted on Sat, Feb 2, 2013 at 8:23 AM

I am a competent driver and until this winter have never had an accident (I
had a fender bender at less than 20 mph on an unplowed road). Every time I
drive somewhere people ride my bumper and then zip around me at 35-40 mph
when I am going the speed limit. You may feel safe and in control in your
huge vehicle with four wheel drive, but you can't stop faster than anyone
else (especially if you're two feet from my bumper going downhill on
ice!!). No car, no driver, can defy the physics of momentum and velocity.
And even the best tires will slip on ice. I understand you going around me
when I'm driving under the speed limit, there's another lane you can help
yourself to - but remember those speed limits are for normal, dry road
conditions. I HAVE to slow down. Please don't treat me like I'm an idiot
for being a safe driver. Instead, maybe be grateful that I am driving my
vehicle safely to make sure YOU are also safe.
