    You leave two or three car lengths between you and the car in front someone always forces their way in front of you. It is hard to be a safe driver, you cannot leave yourself an out, drivers have no respect for others, the least they could do is use the turn signals and give you a little warning they are going to cut you off

    I have to agree on the female tailgating. If anyone ever tailgates me it is always always always a female and almost always a minivan.
    I am female and I too drive a minivan but I always try to be 2 or 3 car lengths away from the car ahead of me. Who needs the extra stress of tailgating.

    I live in Cary, and I agree that it's dangerous. I've been hit three times since I moved here, and each time it was by a Cary resident. And, everyone who hit me was from up North. People here drive too fast and recklessly -- especially the Yankees, and NO ONE slows down for pedestrians crossing the street. Yesterday while I was in the carpool line, I saw someone nearly hit a man crossing the street with his child. It was like the driver was trying to keep the guy from walking in front of him and slowing him down. We were in stop-and-go traffic, and the idiot driver was worried about losing a few seconds.

    Yeah, definitely not newsworthy. Its nothing more than a soccer mom not paying attention and rear-ending another vehicle. Happens many times a day in the Triangle. And I definitely don't want to see a news story about each and every one of them. Definitely a slow news day.

    Cary isn't dangerous.....tailgaiting minivan drivers are dangerous. I drive Cary roads every day and if I had a nickel for everytime a minivan rode my bumper (I'm no putzer but I'm not a speeder, either) or agiant SUV whizzed past or cut in front of me I'd have a TON of nickels. Drivers everywhere seem to be getting more and more inconsiderate these days.

    Cary Rocks, it is one of the few towns that invests on infrastructure. I am amazed how other towns take all the growth revenue but fail to invest in their Police department and road improvements. Cary has the only two "Honor School Of Excellence" in the county. One is Davis Drive Elementary and Highcroft. NO OTHER CITY can make that claim. CARY ROCKS and it is a SUPER CLEAN city. Thank you people.

    C tran is a nice service but has to be subsidized because of low ridership. I wish that it would have more ridership but it is hard to schedule and for most people that have cars which is most people in Cary, it is cheaper now with cheap gas and more convenient to just hop in the car and drive where you need to go.
